Summary

The Feminist Art Program that was set up by Judy Chicago at CSU Fresno in 1970 was arguably the most important event giving rise to the Feminist Art Movement in the United States. Those first fifteen students left that program and went on to influence American art in cities across the country. Entering the Pictureexplores and critically appraises the first four decades of the feminist art movement, from its foundational moments in Fresno, to Los Angeles and New York, including subsequent feminist art institutions and collaborative projects created in these cities and beyond. This interdisciplinary collection of both previously published and original essays by established and emerging feminist artists, art historians, and cultural studies experts provides a historical and theoretical context for the work of these women, and together, these essays offer points of connection that develop narrative linkages and conceptual frameworks for understanding what happened in the art world in the 1970s. The book includes a color insert, paid for by a grant from CSU Fresno, which showcases the work of these artists, both past and present.
