Modern Women : Women Artists at The Museum of Modern Art, Hardback Book

Modern Women : Women Artists at The Museum of Modern Art Hardback

Edited by Cornelia H. Butler, Alexandra Schwartz


"Individuals: Women Artists in the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art" represents the first effort by a major North American museum to examine its collection in light of feminist scholarship of the past three decades.

Featuring illustrated essays by nearly fifty writers, including both MoMA curators and outside scholars, among them many of the strongest voices in current research on art and gender, this groundbreaking publication presents a range of generational and cultural perspectives. "Individuals" focuses on a diverse range of artists active from the late nineteenth century to the present whose works span the spectrum of mediums and genres in the Museum's collection. Organized chronologically into three sections Early Modernism, Mid-Century, and Contemporary, the book comprises both long and short essays emphasizing new research on women artists within these historical time periods.

Richly illustrated with objects from the collection, "Individuals" foregrounds a conversation between past considerations of MoMA's collection and current feminist narratives of art history, putting these varied modes of exploration in productive dialogue.
