Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The first monograph on an artist whose provocative and ultimately deeply moving work played an essential part in women's transformation of the art world. Hannah Wilke's artwork, like her life, frames a heroic story about formal invention and social activism, personal loyalties and individual freedom, and, above all, breathtaking risk. A defining presence in the emerging community of women artists in the 1960s and 70s, Wilke developed a unique and controversial visual language in response to her own and women s experience.

AN incredible book by an incredible lady. This is the definitive book about a feminist artist of the 60's. It details her life and her cancer and that of her mother in art. Should be read by every feminist artist. It shows what the 60's achieved for women in art.

Format: Hardcover
This is a clear and comprehensive monograph about the work of the feminist artist and sculptor, Hannah Wilke. Covering all aspects of her work, the book provides an in-depth understanding of Hannah Wilke's place in art history, including her contribution as the innovator of vaginal art in the 1960s which, in the 1970s, was termed "core imagery" by other feminist artists. The wide range of genres in which Wilke worked are explored, including sculpture, drawing, performance art, and photography, and black and white and color plates illustrate much of her iconic works as well as some work not generally know to the public. Nancy Princenthal writes about Wilke with grace and genuine respect for this sometimes controversial artist who influenced many other artists and whose work remains vibrant and modern in the 21st century.
