Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Feminism and Contemporary Art discusses the work of individual women artists within the context of the wider social, physical and political world. Jo Anna Isaak looks at the work of a diverse range of artists from the United States, the former Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and Canada. She discusses the work of such women as Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Nancy Spero, Elaine Reichek, Jeanne Silverthorne, Mary Kelly, Lorna Simpson and the Guerrilla Girls, and examines a range of work by twentieth-century Soviet women artists. Isaak argues that contemporary art under the influence of feminism provides the momentum for a comic critique of key assumptions about art, art history, and the role of the artist.

Synopsis:

With innovative reworkings of the many traditional approaches to art theory and history, women artists have made an enormous impact on the contemporary art world. This book profiles many of these artists--including Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holcer, Jeanne Silverthorne, and the Guerilla Girls--from their earliest struggles to their ultimate impact, analyzing their creations both as works of art and as milestones in the development of feminist theory. 80 photos. 60 illustrations.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 229-235) and index.
