about

This book analyzes and presents the works of fifteen major women artists working in the Los Angeles area. Combining the disciplines of social science, art history, and women's studies, the book focuses on how these artists use their paintings, prints, murals, masks, installations, and other art forms to comment critically on political and social themes from a feminist perspective. The opening chapter presents a detailed summary of the hidden history of women political artists who have worked in the United States for more than 100 years. It also provides a theoretical perspective on how the artworks in the book constitute the language of resistance against political oppression, sexism, racism, economic inequality, war, environmental degradation, and other forms of racial distress and injustice. Each subsequent chapter concentrates exclusively on a single contemporary woman artist activist. The book highlights many of the major artworks of these women and provides several reproductions of their works throughout the book. 132 photos are included.
