This catalog was produced in conjunction with the 19th Annual Patrons and Friends Exhibition held at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts April 21 to June 30, 1996. Includes a list of Lenders to the Exhibition, a Foreword by Carl Betz, Acknowledgements, Biographies and Solo Exhibition Histories by Leah Schroder, a Catalog of the Exhibition by Susan L. Stoops, "A More than Minimal Chronology" which traces selected events, publications, and group exhibitions from 1966 to 1982, and essays by four celebrated authors on the subject including Whitney Chadwick's "Balancing Acts: Reflections on Postminimalism and Gender in the 1970s" (This book was acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick), Lucy Lippard's interview titled, "From Eccentric to Sensuous Abstraction", Anne M. Wagner's "Body Doubles", and Kate Linker's "A Feminine Subject or Minimalism". The Catalog of the Exhibition includes a full biographical and critical write-up for each of the eleven artists alongside images of their work. Artists here included are: Lynda Benglis, Jackie Ferrara, Nancy Graves, Eva Hesse, Ana Mendieta, Mary Miss, Ree Morton, Michelle Stuart, Dorothea Rockburne, Hannah Wilke, and Jackie Windsor. Truly, a tour de force of an art exhibition that drew together many of the towering figures who contributed both groundbreaking artistic endeavor and a legacy of scholarship documenting the struggle and triumph of feminism in the arts.
