!Women Art Revolution online

Stanford Libraries’ newest digital collection celebrates the feminist art movement, and features videotaped interviews with leading artists, historians, critics and curators. My favorite is the Guerilla Girls interview.
Kudos to some of my amazing colleagues for their work in bringing this fabulous collection online.

More about !Women Art Revolution:

Stanford University Libraries acquired the !W.A.R. collection in 2008 with the intention of making the interviews and texts available online, and is honored to bring this material to the public’s attention. This website also fulfills the expressed wish of the filmmaker, Lynn Hershman Leeson, that these stories be shared with as wide an audience as possible.

The interviewees include an excellent representative sampling of the key founding members of the feminist art movement in the United States. In 1971 Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro founded the Feminist Art Program at the California Institute of the Arts, the first feminist art program in the U.S. In 1977 two key feminist art journals were established, Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics and Chrysalis. Several of the founding members of these journals are among the interviewees: Mary Beth Edelson, Harmony Hammond, Joyce Kozloff, Miriam Schapiro, and Sheila de Bretteville. Moira Roth, another interviewee, edited The Amazing Decade: Women and Performance Arts in America, 1970-1980 (1983), one of the first critical analyses of feminist performance art. While most of the individuals in the collection have long been central figures in American contemporary art, the collection also includes younger artists, such as Miranda July, as well as various members of the Guerrilla Girls.
