'History Lessons' offers reflections on the self in the context of history and globalization. 'Spellbound' focuses on women's embrace of the irrational, subjective, and surreal, while 'Domestic Disturbances' takes on women's conflicted relationship to home, family, and security. Written in lively prose and fully illustrated throughout, this book gives an informed account of the wonderful diversity of recent contemporary art by women"--Publisher description.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The authors of After the Revolution return with an incisive study of the work of contemporary women artists. In After the Revolution, the authors concluded that "The battles may not all have been won...but barricades are gradually coming down, and work proceeds on all fronts in glorious profusion." Now, with The Reckoning, authors Heartney, Posner, Princenthal, and Scott bring into focus the accomplishments of 24 acclaimed international women artists born since 1960 who have benefited from the groundbreaking efforts of their predecessors. The book is organized in four thematic sections: "Bad Girls" profiles artists whose work represents an assault on conventional notions of gender and racial difference. "History Lessons" offers reflections on the self in the context of history and globalization. "Spellbound" focuses on women's embrace of the irrational, subjective, and surreal, while Domestic Disturbances" takes on women's conflicted relationship to home, family, and security. Written in lively prose and fully illustrated throughout, this book gives an informed account of the wonderful diversity of recent contemporary art by women.

Library Journal Review

The work of 24 international female -artists born after 1960 is covered here by the coauthors of After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art (2007). -Heartney (contributing editor, Art in America), Helaine Posner (Neuberger Museum of Art), Nancy Princenthal (former senior editor, Art in America), and independent curator Sue Scott organize the work into four sections-"Bad Girls," "Spellbound," "Domestic Disturbances," and "History Lessons"-and analyze how feminism influenced artists Janine Antoni, Jane and Louise Wilson, Cao Fei, Wangechi Mutu, Mika Rottenberg, Cecily Brown, and Pipilotti Rist and how their work impacts visual and performance art. The women confront issues of gender and race, home and family, and history and globalization. While an extensive bibliography for general reference is included, for the individual artists, a bibliography contains their monographs, solo and group exhibition catalogs, and studies. Succinct essays on each person are complemented by color and black-and-white images of their output. VERDICT Suitable for anyone who wants to learn about contemporary art by women, as well as undergraduate and graduate students, scholars, and researchers studying visual and performance art.-Tina Chan, SUNY Oswego (c) Copyright 2014.

CHOICE Review

The Reckoning is a jargon-free, very well-written volume from the "third wave" of international feminist art publications. It offers attentive readers another potential version of the historiography of feminist art--from Womanhouse, Judy Chicago, Miriam Shapiro, Lynda Benglis, and Linda Nochlin to the present. It is also designed and written to be the true sequel to After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art (2nd ed., 2013; 1st ed., CH, Jan'08, 45-2415). In addition to Eleanor Heartney, the contributors to both The Reckoning and the second edition of After the Revolution are Helaine Posner, Nancy Princenthal, and Sue Scott. Though this new book has 100 fewer pages than the second edition of After the Revolution, it is up-to-date with women's multimedia, performance art, installations, and photography. Feminist erotica abounds as several artists discuss working with pornographic sources. The Reckoning more than doubles the number of featured artists in After the Revolution to 25, with text, illustrations, and ample color reproductions. Featuring 11 graphs, it is arranged in four categories titled "Bad Girls," "Spellbound," "Domestic Disturbances," and "History Lessons." Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and above. M. M.
