Unframed by Rosemary Betterton

Book Description

The first sustained analysis of the relationship between women's contemporary painting and feminism. This international collection of specially commissioned pieces brings together writing both by theorists engaged with the process and practice of painting and practitioners engaged in theory, to bring into question what has been a neglected area within feminist literature on visual culture. Looking at gender, subjectivity, spectatorship, the gendered audience and maternal subjectivity and painting, Unframed encourages reflexivity about the practice and includes in its scope a range of processes including drawing, printing, collage and installation. The process of painting and the materiality of paint, haptic vision and the contemporary sublime are all discussed. Lavishly illustrated in black and white, Unframed will be of interest to practitioners and students of fine art, art history and women's studies.
