Drawing from the Centre Georges Pomidou’s own rich and diverse collection, this catalogue from an exhibition at the Center ambitiously challenges and subsequently repositions the understanding of the contributions by women artists in modern and contemporary art. Visual artists, designers, photographers, architects, video artists, film makers, and performance artists are included among the many talented women. Combining a wealth of illustrations and photographs with comments by the artists themselves, theoretical texts by international writers on the question of gender in art, and a comparative history of women and their presence in art, this edition provides a homage to an undeniable force in the practice and development of twentieth century art.
