From Library Journal Most contributors to this readable volume attended the 1992 British conference "Feminist Art Criticism: Into the 1990s." In to-the-point, yet restrained, introductory comments, critic Deepwell defines feminism as "a broad umbrella for a diverse number of positions and strategies amongst women involved in the production, distribution, and consumption of art." Investigating these positions, some 22 short but effective essays are grouped by broad headings: "Between Theory and Practice," "Curatorship and the Art World," "On the Question of Censorship," "The Engagement with Psychoanalysis," and "Textiles." These challenging eyewitness accounts of recent feminist contributions to the art world are informative and absorbing reading. Well recommended for academic collections.?Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Towson State Univ., Md.
