Art of Feminism

A survey of feminist art from suffrage posters to The Dinner Party and beyond: “Lavishly produced images . . . indispensable to scholars, critics and artists.” —Art Monthly

Once again, women are on the march. And since its inception in the nineteenth century, the women’s movement has harnessed the power of images to transmit messages of social change and equality to the world.

From highlighting the posters of the Suffrage Atelier, through the radical art of Judy Chicago and Carrie Mae Weems, to the cutting-edge work of Sethembile Msezane and Andrea Bowers, this comprehensive international survey traces the way feminists have shaped visual arts and media throughout history.

Featuring more than 350 works of art, illustration, photography, performance, and graphic design—along with essays examining the legacy of the radical canon—this rich volume showcases the vibrancy of the feminist aesthetic over the past century and a half.
