Singular Women by Kristen Frederickson


Original Title: Singular Women

"An interesting and original collection. A must for all those interested in women artists and the women who have written about them."--Linda Nochlin, author of Representing Women "Kristen Frederickson and Sarah Webb have provided us with a missing link, a truly feminist art history that connects with the work done in the 1970s and thankfully ignores the 'post-feminist' hiatus. Singular Women is a model for future scholarship on women's art. If only the books it inspires are as rigorous, vigorous, varied, and readable as this one."--Lucy Lippard, author of The Pink Glass Swan: Selected Feminist Essays on Art "The most provocative, challenging, and intimate writing to appear in feminist art history since Linda Nochlin launched the field with her essay 'Why Are There No Great Women Artists?' Thirty years later there are both great women artists and great women writers. This book assembles some of the best and boldest among them. Not afraid to address the boring, the failed, the neglected, or the masterpiece, Singular Women sets the standard for feminist art history of the twenty-first century."--Peggy Phelan, author of the survey essay in Art and Feminism, ed. Helena Reckitt "This important volume addresses the vexed question whether the traditional monograph, rightly under suspicion in recent years, can be reinvented to serve feminist art history well. Its excellent--and varied--essays answer with a confident and convincing affirmative, demonstrating how we can talk about women's art practice without abandoning the biographical and social stories that enable and illuminate it."--Janet Wolff, author of Resident Alien: Feminist Cultural Criticism "Contributes new understandings to the now familiar problems of writing biographies of artists and, in particular, writing about a woman artist. It re-inscribes the woman artist in the discourse while probing--through a variety of approaches--the possibilities for a critical discourse on and appreciation of the woman artist."--Catherine M. Soussloff, author of The Absolute Artist: The Historiography of a Concept "Demonstrates how women historians have had to develop close relationships (real or imagined) with the artists about whom they write. The reader is allowed to see the desire that constitutes, but is normally hidden within, the writing of history."--Jane Blocker, author of Where Is Ana Mendieta? Identity, Performativity, and Exile

Marina Abramovi by Marina Abramovic


Original Title: Marina Abramovi

Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade in the late 1960s, Marina Abramovic has been a pioneer of performance art, creating some of the most important works in the field. Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present accompanies an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art that documents approximately fifty of the artists ephemeral, time- and media-based works from throughout her career. The book will also discuss a unique element of the Museums retrospective, live performance: a new work created for the occasion, and performed by the artist herself; and recreations of Abramovics works by other performers the first such to be undertaken in a museum setting. The book spans over four decades of Abramovics early interventions, and sound pieces, video works, installations, photographs, solo performances and collaborative performances made with the Dutch artist Ulay (Uwe Laysiepen). Its essays examine Abramovics ideas of time, duration, and the reperformance of performance art as a way to extend it into posterity. Marina Abramovic also includes a CD, an audio recording of the artists own voice, guiding the reader through the publication. The artist is present not only in the exhibition but also in the experience of the book.
