The Modern Woman and Abstract Expressionism

Author: Aliza Rachel Edelman
Publisher:
ISBN: 0542953013
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Abstract expressionism

This dissertation investigates the dominant ways that three women artists---Ethel Schwabacher, Elaine de Kooning, and Grace Hartigan---struggled to define their social and artistic identity in relation to (and sometimes in contradistinction from) Abstract Expressionism and the contemporary Modern Woman ideals of the 1950s. The postwar Modern Woman embodied various roles by assuming new professional and financial responsibilities, identifying with broader sexual behaviors, and either managing or completely rejecting marriage and motherhood. Chapter One presents the subject of the Modern Woman and the tensions of "feminine ascendancy" through women's identification with multiple roles during and after World War II, and through the appearance of women's adoption of masculine behavior. I argue that the contemporary fears of feminine ascendancy and masculine attributions parallel the criticism and challenges for women artists in the patriarchal arena of Abstract Expressionism.

Feministische Avantgarde der 1970er Jahre

Author: Gabriele Schor
Publisher:
ISBN: 3791354450
Release Date: 2015-03-17
Genre:

Provokativ, radikal, authentisch: Die Pionierinnen der feministischen Kunst0In der Geschichte der Kunst fungierte die Frau meist als Projektionsfläche männlicher Fantasien, Vorurteile und Beziehungsmuster. In den 1970er-Jahren begannen Künstlerinnen jedoch, sich mit dem Bild des weiblichen Selbst auseinanderzusetzen. Sie erkundeten ihren eigenen Körper und schufen eine Bildsprache selbstbewusster weiblicher Identität. Die Werke der Pionierinnen des Feminismus in der Kunst waren provokativ, radikal und poetisch, ironisch und zynisch, zornig und authentisch. Alles Vorherige wurde verworfen, neu definiert und mit der Fotografie, Performance, Film und Videokunst wurden neue Ausdruckswege gefunden. Der Band vereint Werke von Cindy Sherman, Ana Mendieta, Ulrike Rosenbach, Eleanor Antin, Birgit Jürgenssen, Renate Bertlmann, Francesca Woodman und anderen entschieden feministischen Künstlerinnen.0Exhibition: Hamburger Kunsthalle, Germany (13.3.-31.5.2015) / Kunsthalle Munich, Germany (19.8.-6.11.2016) / Museum für Moderne Kunst, Vienna, Austria (11.2016-2.2017).

Abstract Expressionism

Author: Ann Eden Gibson
Publisher:
ISBN: 0300080727
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Art

The Abstract Expressionist movement has long been bound up in the careers and lifestyles of about twelve white male artists who exhibited in New York in the 1940s. In this book Ann Eden Gibson reconsiders the history of the movement by investigating other artists -- people of color, women, and gays and lesbians -- whose versions of abstraction have been largely ignored until now.
