a bold celebration of innovative, brilliant artists reclaiming the idea of 'women's work'.
in the history of western art, decorative and applied arts have been separated from the 'high arts' of painting and sculpture and deemed to be more suitable for women. artists began to reclaim and redefine these materials and methods, energizing them with expressions of identity and imagination. women's work tells the story of this radical change, highlighting some of the modern and contemporary artists who dared to defy this hierarchy and who, through, experimentation and invention, transformed their medium.
with biographical entries on each artist featured, as well as beautiful images of their artworks, women's work raises up the work of these visionary and ground breaking artists, telling their stories and examining their artistic legacies.
