Modern Women: Women Artists at The Museum of Modern Art
By by Cornelia Butler and Alexandra Schwartz


This groundbreaking publication examines MoMA's collection by highlighting the work of modern and contemporary women artists whose diversity of practices and contributions to the avant-garde movements of the twentieth century have been enormous, if often underrecognized. Featuring fifty illustrated essays by many of the strongest voices in current research on art and gender, Modern Women presents a variety of generational and cultural perspectives and examines both canonical figures and lesser-known artists. Prefaced by three introductory essays, the book is organized chronologically into three sections, Early Modernism, Mid-Century, and Contemporary to emphasize new research on women artists within these historical time periods. Richly illustrated with works from the collection, Modern Women offers a lively discourse around gender and the production of meaning in art, one absolutely necessary for a more complex understanding of the art of our time.
