Grove Art Online
This month Grove Art Online launches the women artists update which has been guest edited by Whitney Chadwick (San Francisco State University) and Aaris Sherin (St John’s University). The update expands the broad coverage of women in Grove Art Online (now over 850 biographies) by adding nearly 120 new articles and essays on women artists and designers, and over 120 new images of works by women.
New biographies include Kara Walker, Shahzia Sikander, Hildegard of Bingen, Valie Export, Guerrilla Girls, Destiny Deacon, Sheila de Bretteville, Paula Scher and more. New essays cover key subjects such as Women and Collaborative Practice, Women and Performance, and Women and Transnationalism.
In addition three seminal artists—Faith Ringgold, Kiki Smith and Jacqueline Winsor—reflect on their artistic development and the art world today in illuminating interviews.
