Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

As perhaps the preeminent international feminist director and curator of her generation, Catherine de Zegher has made some of the most significant exhibitions of women artists of the past 25 years, most famously the groundbreaking and seminal exhibition Inside the Visible (1996). She has worked with and written about many of the greatest artists of the period, in particular helping to establish the reputations of many who have defined contemporary art in a new and wider interpretation. This publication gathers together some of the key essays de Zegher has written on women artists over the past 20 years: Hilma af Klint, Bracha L. Ettinger, Ellen Gallagher, Gego, Monika Grzymala, Mona Hatoum, Eva Hesse, Cristina Iglesias, Ann Veronica Janssens, Emma Kunz, Anna Maria Maiolino, Agnes Martin, Julie Mehretu, Avis Newman, Martha Rosler, Ranji Shettar, Nancy Spero, Jo lle Tuerlinckx, Ria Verhaeghe and Cecilia Vicu a. These essays trace a significant turning point in the perception of women artists of the past 100 years, and together form a crucial text for understanding ways in which art made by women has shaped the wide field of art and culture today. Serious and engaging, many of the essays have helped establish the long-overdue recognition of several of their subjects. De Zegher's writing contains vivid and profound insights into works and lives of extraordinary intensity.
