Women's Caucus for Art NY Chapter Invites you to

Women Artists in the New Millennium

A Panel Discussion with Eleanor Heartney, Nancy Princenthal, and Sue Scott

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 discussion explores the evolving status and concerns of women artists who followed the pioneering feminist artists of the 1970s.

It brings together three of the four authors of The Reckoning: Women Artists of the New Millennium, a book published last fall by the authors of the earlier, prizewinning book After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art. Eleanor Heartney, Nancy Princenthal and Sue Scott will discuss the work of women artists born after 1960, with a focus on changing attitudes toward the body, 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.

Eleanor Heartney is Contributing Editor to Art in America and Artpress and author of numerous books on contemporary art.

Nancy Princenthal is a New York-based critic, former Senior Editor of Art in America, and author of a monograph on Hannah Wilke and a forthcoming biography of Agnes Martin.

Sue Scott is an independent curator and writer living in New York and former owner of Sue Scott Gallery.
