WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

WACK! documents and illustrates the impact of the feminist revolution on art made between 1965 and 1980, featuring pioneering and influential works by artists who came of age during that period, Chantal Akerman, Lynda Benglis, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Valie Export, Mary Heilmann, Sanja Ivekovic, Ana Mendieta, Annette Messager, and others, as well as important works made in those years by artists whose whose careers were already well established, including Louise Bourgeois, Judy Chicago, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, Lucy Lippard, Alice Neel, and Yoko Ono. Written entries on each artist offer key biographical and descriptive information and accompanying essays by leading critics, art historians, and scholars offer new perspectives on feminist art practice. The topics provide a broad social context for the artworks themselves.

No dust jacket. Stiff softback cream cover mildly scuffed around the edges and with some damage to the boards. The pages inside are in very good clean condition.

This is a heavy volume and will be sent at an increased postal cost of £8.00.
