“In the 1960s, women artists formed Women Artists in Revolution (WAR), a coalition to cope with exclusion from museum exhibitions, art journals, educational literature, and historical documentation. The cost of this exclusion is still felt today. In 2006, even after the successes of women artists such as Barbara Kreuger, Shirin Neshat, and Cindy Sherman, a poll of Whitney Museum patrons found that most of them could not name three women artists. Deftly combining reportage and personal memoir, !WOMEN ART REVOLUTION excavates the evolution of the feminist art movement in America through intimate interviews with many celebrated painters, performance artists, curators, and academics, filtered through Hershman-Leeson’s own interpretation as a front row observer for more than 40 years.”
