Twenty Years of Make Magazine : Back to the Future of Women's Art (Hardcover)
about this item
During the 1970s, adding “women’s” to “art” was a powerfully political act. Artists, art historians, critics and curators began to explore the women’s art practice, and to challenge its invisibility. In the 1980s, they creatively critiqued representations of female sexuality, and in the 1990s, began to embrace the “post-feminist” idea of difference and the performance of gender. Throughout, the MAKE magazine offered a unique platform to critically engage with women’s art. Beginning in 1983 as the Women Artists Slide Library Newsletter and culminating in a 100 page final issue in 2002, this pioneering publication is a vibrant document of some of the most significant moments in feminist art history and practice. In keeping with the spirit of the magazine, this unparalleled anthology delves into the MAKE archive and presents us with a diverse range of exhibition and book reviews, interviews and features that cover sexuality and the body, race and ethnicity, the technical image and feminist art histories.
