New York New Wave : The Legacy of Feminist Art in Emerging Practice Hardback
New York is a centre of creative production for an exciting, emerging generation of women artists.
Their work investigates themes such as the body as medium and subject matter; the deconstruction of the existing patriarchal order of the art world; the appropriation of earlier art historical references; and the use of so-called abject and everyday materials.
New York New Wave investigates the relevance of earlier feminist practice for this 'new' generation, asking: Does gender difference still play a role in today's practice?
How can younger women artists embrace a radical political ideology and yet remain market friendly?
How far have these artists diverged from the established feminist "tradition"?
Artists discussed include: Firelei Baez, EV Day, Ruby LaToya Fraser, Diana Al-Hadid, K8 Hardy, Valerie Hegarty, Cindy Hinant, Dawn Kasper, Anya Kielar, Liz Magic Laser, Narcissister, Alix Pearlstein, Aurel Schmidt, AL Steiner and W.A.G.E.
