26 Jun 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone
This book celebrates the anniversary of a historic exhibition from 1971: Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists, curated by Lucy R. Lippard and presented at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.
But this book does not stop at presenting the 26 women artists in the original exhibition, as it is titled 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone! As you’ve probably guessed, it features alongside twenty-six contemporary artists who identify as female or non-binary and traces the development of feminist art practices over the last five decades. And that makes it a milestone in itself.
