Amidst the tumult and revolution that characterized the latter half of the 20th century in Latin America and the US, women artists were staking their claim in nearly every field. This wide- ranging volume examines the work of more than 100 female artists with nearly 300 works in the fields of painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance art, and other experimental media. A series of thematic essays, arranged by country, address the cultural and political contexts in which these radical artists worked, while other essays address key issues such as feminism, art history, and the political body. Drawing its design and feel from the radical underground pamphlets, catalogs, and posters of the era, this is the first examination of a highly influential period in 20th-century art history.

A landmark exhibition on display at the Brooklyn Museum from April 21 through September 17, 2017, We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85 examines the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color during the emergence of second-wave feminism. It showcases the work of black women artists such as Emma Amos, Maren Hassinger, Senga Nengudi, Lorraine O'Grady, Howardena Pindell, Faith Ringgold, and Betye Saar, making it one of the first major exhibitions to highlight the voices and experiences of women of color. In so doing, it reorients conversations around race, feminism, political action, art production, and art history in this significant historical period. The accompanying Sourcebook republishes an array of rare and little-known documents from the period by artists, writers, cultural critics, and art historians such as Gloria Anzaldua, James Baldwin, bell hooks, Lucy R. Lippard, Audre Lorde, Toni Morrison, Lowery Stokes Sims, Alice Walker, and Michelle Wallace. These documents include articles, manifestos, and letters from significant publications as well as interviews, some of which are reproduced in facsimile form. The Sourcebook also includes archival materials, rare ephemera, and an art-historical overview essay. Helping readers to move beyond standard narratives of art history and feminism, this volume will ignite further scholarship while showing the true breadth and diversity of black women's engagement with art, the art world, and politics from the 1960s to the 1980s.We Wanted a Revolution will also be on display at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles from October 13, 2017 through January 14, 2018; the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York from February 17, 2018 through May 27, 2018; and at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston from June 26, 2018 through September 30, 2018. Published by the Brooklyn Museum and distributed by Duke University Press.

"Creating Her Own Image" argues that, for centuries, African American women artists have, through their artistic production, created an alternate vision of how women of color should be perceived in American culture. This synthesis, organised chronologically, covers major themes in African major artistic movements, such as abstract art, vernacular art and postmodernism in painting, sculpture, and other forms.

Charting over 30 years of feminist debate on the significance of gender in the making and understanding of art, this archival anthology gathers together 99 indicative texts from North America, Europe and Australasia. The volume embraces a broad range of threads and perspectives, from diverse ethnic approaches, lesbian theory, and postmodernism to education and aesthetics. The writings of artists and activists are juxtaposed with those of academics, creating an entertaining and provocative web of ideas. Some of the texts are now regarded as classic, but the anthology is particularly notable for its inclusion of rare and significant material not reprinted elsewhere. The scale and structure of the volume make it a uniquely flexible resource for study and research. Each of the nine sections focuses on a specific area of debate and is introduced by a descriptive summary. The texts within each chapter are then presented in chronological order, indexing differing positions as they developed over time. Lists of essential reading are provided for students or lay readers seeking an introduction, whilst more extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter and at the end of the volume support further research.

Since its inception nearly 25 years ago, the feminist art movement has transformed the art world. Now, co-editors Norma Broude and Mary D. Gaffard, professors of art history at the American University in Washington D.C., bring together 18 influential art historians, critics and artists to present this volume - the first history and analysis of a fertile and dynamic period of artistic growth. Probing and provocative texts, backed by nearly 250 illustrations, examine the first feminist art education programmes, Chicago's now legendary Dinner Party, and such key exhibitions as "Women Artists: 1550-1950", organized in 1976 by Linda Nochlin and Ann Sutherland Harris. Here are the remarkable painters, sculptors, photographers and performance artists of the period, among them Judy Chicago, Miriam Schapiro, Laurie Anderson, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Betye Saar, Cindy Sherman, Nancy Spero and Hannah Wilke. Feminist organizations networks and publications, and women artists redefining the way women are depicted in art are all explored. The impact and the highs and lows of the movement itself - the backlash of the 1980s and the resurgence of women's issues in the art of the 1990s - are discussed in a final section. Norma Broude and Mary D. Garrard are co-editors of the anthology "Feminism and Art History" and its sequel "The Expanding Discourse".
