Enhanced with 8 video clips excerpted from works by some of the most original artists working in video today, this E-Book plus edition of The Reckoning: Women Artists of the New Millennium brings the acclaimed book to new life. The Reckoning brings into focus the accomplishments of 24 acclaimed international women artists born since 1960 who have benefited from the groundbreaking efforts of their predecessors. The book is organized in four thematic sections: "Bad Girls" profiles artists whose work represents an assault on conventional notions of gender and racial difference; "History Lessons" offers reflections on the self in the context of history and globalization; "Spellbound" focuses on women’s embrace of the irrational, subjective, and surreal; while "Domestic Disturbances" takes on women's conflicted relationship to home, family, and security. Written in lively prose, generously illustrated, and newly enhanced with video and an easily navigable layout, The Reckoning gives an informed account of the diversity of recent contemporary art by women.
Praise for The Reckoning
"An indispensable contribution to the literature on contemporary art by women." —Whitney Chadwick, author of Women, Art and Society
"In After the Revolution, [the authors] set a new standard in documenting and evaluating the work of a dozen key women artists, spanning generations between the 1960s to the 2000s…. The beat goes on with the appearance of The Reckoning, written by the same authors in the same accessible scholarly style, but reflecting important historical changes over the past decade and more." —Holland Cotter, The New York Times
“A jargon-free, very well-written volume from the ‘third wave’ of international feminist publications…. Recommended.” —Choice
“Quintessential…. The fascinating volume gives a modern voice to women artists beyond the days of 1970s feminism.” —Mutualart.com
