Unframed: Practices and Politics of Women's Contemporary Painting
I.B.Tauris, Mar 4, 2004 - Art - 228 pages
Women's painting is undergoing a vibrant revival, yet has been little explored in writing on modern visual culture. Unframed is a welcome and fresh examination of women's contemporary painting. The book uniquely presents new writing by practitioners who engage with theory and critical theorists who deal directly with contemporary practice. All contributors reflect on their own practice and that of other women painters and theorists; throughout their common aim is to develop innovative ways of thinking about and through painting by women. The book focuses on current debates on gender, subjectivity, spectatorship and painting and successfully moves them forward in the new millennium. It will appeal to a range of readers, including scholars, students, artists and gallery goers.
