Female Gaze: Women Artists Making Their World

Robert Cozzolino, Glenn Adamson, Anna C. Chave

The Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women is a collection at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) of approximately 400 works of art including paintings, photographs, drawings, watercolours, pastels, collage, prints, fabric pieces, ceramics, bronze, wood, and sculpture in other media by over 150 artists. The collection includes works by artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Joan Brown, Viola Frey, Ana Mendieta, Alice Neel, Louise Nevelson, Christina Ramberg, Betye Saar, Kiki Smith, Nancy Spero, and Beatrice Wood among many others. This accessibly written, fully illustrated publication includes ten new essays on women artists since the 1920s. The chief aim is to document and celebrate this unprecedented gift in PAFA’s history. The book breaks new ground in scholarship on its topics, takes risks with interpretation, and uses the broad themes and wide array of artists represented in the collection as a starting point for reflections on the history of the feminist movement, individual artists, and regional identities. Artists from the collection have a strong voice throughout the publication through interviews, writings, and the incorporation of archival materials. The Linda Lee Alter Collection catalogue will be the lasting document of the collection and will accompany the travelling version of the exhibition, which is projected to travel to four US venues in 2013 and 2014. AUTHOR: Robert Cozzolino is Senior Curator and Curator of Modern Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. ILLUSTRATIONS: 200 colour illustrations
