In 1971, when Linda Nochlin published her essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” in a special issue of Art News, there were no women’s studies, no feminist theory, no such thing as feminist art criticism; there was instead a focus on the mythic figure of the great (male) artist through history. Since then, the “woman artist” has not simply been assimilated into the canon of “greatness” but has expanded art-making into a multiplicity of practices with new parameters and perspectives. In Women Artists at the Millennium artists including Martha Rosler and Yvonne Rainer reflect upon their own varied practices and art historians discuss the innovative work of such figures as Louise Bourgeois, Lygia Clark, Mona Hatoum, and Carrie Mae Weems. And Linda Nochlin considers changes since her landmark essay and looks to the future, writing, “We will need all our wit and courage to make sure that women’s voices are heard, their work seen and written about.”
