Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For 10 years, from the mid-'80s to the mid-'90s, artist and designer Susan Bee and Mira Schor, a painter on the faculty of the Parsons School of Design, edited a magazine they had founded, devoted to "visual pleasure with a culturally activist edge." Bee and Schor have culled 40 of the most representative essays, reviews, critical forums, interviews and "musings" for M/E/A/N/I/N/G: An Anthology of Artists' Writings, Theory, and Criticism, which takes its name from their magazine. Book artist Johanna Drucker contributes a foreword; Alison Knowles, Carolee Schneemann, Richard Tuttle, Nancy K. Miller, Rackstraw Downes, Joanna Freuh, Jerry Saltz and many others weigh in. The book makes for a fascinating snapshot of a transitional era in American art, one whose terms and preoccupations are still being reworked and worked out.

Review

M/E/A/N/I/N/G reflects a time when artists were, in a sense, the critical theorists of the moment. Mira Schor and Susan Bee inspired many of them to write about the subjects that were closest to their hearts, minds, and art.”—Elizabeth Hess, art critic


“The beauty of this book is the brilliant amassing by Susan Bee and Mira Schor of so many voices, ideas, and approaches. This anthology is full of gems, separately and in their juxtapositions. Fascinating, rich fare.”—Moira Roth, coauthor of Difference/Indifference: Musings on Postmodernism, Marcel Duchamp, and John Cage
