134 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes; 28 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, Calif., Sept. 14, 2003-Jan. 25, 2004, at the Contemporary Art Museum, Saint Louis, Sept. 16-Dec. 31, 2005 and at the Blaffer Gallery, the art museum of the University of Houston, Jan. 21-Apr. 2, 2006, organized by the Orange County Museum of Art. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Richly illustrated with colour plates. Feminist artists explore the female and adolescent girl psyche. "Imagine a girls' night out with Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Elina Brotherus, Dorit Cypis, Rineke Dijkstra, Katy Grannan, Sarah Jones, Kelly Nipper, Daniela Rossell, Shirana Shahbazi, and Salla Tykka. Imagine a very particular kind of girl talk, one that crisscrosses generations and nations, that openly and fluidly recognizes gender differences and sexual necessities, that delves deeply into psychology and lyricism. A conversation that's moved beyond challenging or critiquing feminist archetypes--but knows how it got to that point, thank you early feminism. The women artists represented in this catalogue create works that possess a quasi-documentary feel and a directness of approach, that engage such classical representational subjects as landscape, portraiture, and self-portraiture. They acknowledge their predecessors, the feminist photography, film, and performance artists of the 70s and 80s, but have moved on to confidently explore feminist identity, especially in the adolescent girl, and produce imagery that is compellingly, and resoundingly, uncertain and contradictory." - Publisher. CONTENTS: Girl, Unmasked, by Elizabeth Armstrong; Girl, Unmarked, by Taru Elfving; Moving, by Bill Horrigan; The Artists, by Irene Hofmann.

9 Baigell, Renee, and Baigell, Matthew
Peeling Potatoes, Painting Pictures: Women Artists in Post-Soviet Russia, Estonia, and Latvia: The First Decade
New Brunswick, NJ Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum and Rutgers University Press 2001 0813529468 / 9780813529462 Trade Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xii, 170 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. "How do women artists in Russia, Estonia, and Latvia view themselves in the post-Soviet era? What is their relationship to feminism and how has that relationship changed following the fall of the Soviet regime? Having conducted over sixty interviews between 1995 and 1998, Renee Baigell and Matthew Baigell explore in this volume these women's difficulties of pursuing an art career in a male-dominated society, and the attitudes of their male counterparts toward feminist concerns. The artists interviewed -- some born as early as the 1920s, others as recently as the 1970s -- discuss their private lives and situations, as well as specific works of art. They reveal a wide range of attitudes and a complex relationship with a feminist movement often regarded as an alien import from the West. Gender issues in art school, parental attitudes toward the prospect of their daughters becoming artists, the demands and strains of career and family life, and questions regarding a female approach to imagery are among the topics raised, as are these artists' hopes and dreams for the future. This book also includes a brief chronology of pertinent art exhibitions during the 1990s. Readers will both gain a new perspective on universal issues facing women artists worldwide, as well as comprehend, with fresh appreciation, the relative freedom enjoyed by female artists in the West." - Publisher.

An Intimate Distance: Women, Artists, and the Body, Betterton, Rosemary
20 Betterton, Rosemary
An Intimate Distance: Women, Artists, and the Body
London and New York Routledge 1996 0415110858 / 9780415110853 Trade Paperback Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xiv, 240 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 23 cm. Good+. Firm binding, with one spine crease. Marginalia/1 page. "In a series of original readings of the work of artists from Kathe Kollwitz and Georgia O'Keeffe to Helen Chadwick and Laura Godfrey Issacs, Rosemary Betterton explores how women artists have addressed the changing relationship between women, the body and its representation in art. In detailed critical essays that range from the analysis of maternal imagery in the work of German artists at the turn of the century, to the unrepresented body in contemporary abstract painting. Betterton argues that women's art practices offer ways of engaging with our fascinations and fears of the female body. Reflecting the shift within feminist art over the last decade, An Intimate Distance sets the reinscription of the body within women's art practice in the context of current debates on the body, including reproductive science, maternal subjectivity and the concept of 'body horror' in relation to food, aging and sex. Drawing on recent theories of embodiment developed within feminist philosphyand psychoanalytic theory, the essays reveal how th epermeable boundaries between nature and culture, the female body and technology are being crossed in the work of women artists." - Publisher. Erotic art.
