Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution

by Cornelia Butler & Lisa Gabrielle Mark
£29.95   hardback  MIT Press (2007)

Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution by Cornelia Butler & Lisa Gabrielle Mark With critical essays and analysis, a groundbreaking collection of art produced by women artists during the 1970s reveals the influence of the feminist revolution on art in works by Judy Chicago, Louise Bourgeois, Susan Hiller, Yoko Ono, Hannah Wilke, Faith Ringgold, Cindy Sherman & others. Published to accompany the exhibition at Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution

"In the space of a generation, feminism transformed social relations, personal identities, and institutional structures. While many of feminism's victories were hard won and indeed remain contested, it is difficult to overstate the movement's impact. The feminist revolution in art was no less radical and transformative than the social movement from which it drew strength. The very terms of current artistic practice are made possible in numerous respects by the groundbreaking works produced by feminist artists in the 1960s and 1970s. However, while the social impact of the feminist movement is broadly recognized, the extraordinary contributions of feminism in art are considerably less understood and appreciated. Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution seeks to redress that balance"
(Jeremy Strick, Director of MOCA, Los Angeles, from the foreword)
