Book Description:
Generations and Geographies collects a unique assembly of artists, curators, critics and researchers to consider the question of sexual difference and its significance in the production and reception of visual representation by women artists.Generations indicates a sense of awareness of the historical and political positioning of women, whereas Geographies calls attention to their location in terms of nationality, imperialism, migration, exile, diaspora and social difference.

Drawing on the fullest range of current theoretical perspectives, works by women artists of the twentieth century are examined in terms of themes such as the mother, the body, the land and history/memory. While representing artistic practices in the United States, Canada and Europe through the work of Orlan, Ana Mendieta and Jenny Saville, Generations and Geographies counters the West's artistic hegemony by equally studying women working in non western contexts. Unique coverage of such artists as Chilean Cecilia Vicuna, Shimada Yoshika from Japan, Jin me Yoon and Re Hyun Park from Korea, Bracha Lichtenberg from Israel, and British/Zanibari artist Lubiana Himid provides a long awaited international scope to the study of feminist theory in the visual arts.
