Eleanor Heartney
"The Reckoning: Women Artists of the New Millenium"
What does feminism mean to women artists today? Does it still make sense to talk about art by women as a distinct category? How does the work of women artists reflect contemporary concerns? This lecture is based on The Reckoning: Women Artists of the New Millennium, a book published this fall which considers the work of a select group of women artists born after 1960. Heartney is a New York based art writer and cultural critic. She is Contributing Editor to Art in America Artpress and has written extensively on contemporary art issues for multiple publications including Artnews, the Washington Post, and the New York Times.
