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.
