Double Vision: Perspectives on Gender and the Visual Arts
Natalie Harris Bluestone
Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1995 - Social Science - 159 pages
This interdisciplinary collection on women and art includes essays representing the fields of philosophy, modern European social history, the history of art and architecture, and film theory and criticism. Although their approaches and conclusions are intentionally and markedly diverse, the authors share an experience of "double vision." As women scholars, curators, and teachers, they occupy a position which is both inside the mainstream of their fields and outside the dominant group that has produced the bulk of the appreciated art of the past and controlled academic institutions and inquiry.
