Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Forum, 4th Floor
Does it still make sense to talk about art by women as a distinct category? Eleanor Heartney, Helaine Posner, Nancy Princenthal, and Sue Scott, co-authors of The Reckoning: Women Artists of the New Millennium, respond to the question during this discussion of their new book. The panelists explore themes in contemporary art made by women, such as challenges to conventional concepts of identity, meditations on history, the adoption of the irrational, and women’s conflicted relationships with the domestic. This discussion, which includes a book signing, reunites the four women who co-authored the acclaimed book After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art. This program is free with Museum admission.
