More than any artist of the last 30 years, New York City-based painter Deborah Kass has made it her life's work to position women artists on the great paternal playing field of art history. From her early paintings of the sea-pounding rocky shores to her eponymous Warhol Project series and her recent text-based works, Kass has quite literally fired the cannon, challenged the status quo and refigured art history. The book features in-depth essays by a panoply of important figures, including Robert Storr, renowned curator, professor and onetime subject of a Kass painting, and Griselda Pollock, one of the most important feminist art historians in the field. The volume can be seen as both a primer on feminist movements of the past 30 years and as a potent wake-up call to the establishment that artists of Kass's caliber must be at the forefront of today's art world.
