Women Artists in the New Millennium: A Panel Discussion

Does it still make sense to talk about art by women as a distinct category? How does the work of women artists reflect contemporary concerns? How are women artists faring vis-a-vis men in the hyper- commercialized contemporary art market? This panel explores the evolving status and concerns of women artists who followed the pioneering feminist artists of the 1970s. Authors of The Reckoning: Women Artists of the New Millennium Eleanor Heartney, Nancy Princenthal, Helaine Posner and Sue Scott discuss the work of women artists born after 1960, with a focus on changing attitudes toward the body and sexuality; the globalization of social and political issues; introspection, dream and fantasy as subversive strategies; and contemporary responses to society’s mixed messages about gender roles and the domestic sphere.

The Reckoning: Women Artists of the New Millennium, will be available for purchase and book signing. 

Free and open to the public, no reservations necessary.

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.
