OPENINGS: A MEMOIR FROM THE WOMEN'S ART MOVEMENT, NEW YORK CITY, 1970-1992. Sabra Moore. New Village Press, New York, 2016. 414 pp. with 905 ills. (561 col.). 24 x 19 cm. LC 2016-15951 ISBN 9781613320181 In English.
Publisher's description: In this vividly illustrated narrative, author Sabra Moore chronicles twenty-two years of her life and interactions with other women artists finding ways to create politically and personally meaningful artworks, exhibitions, protests, and institutions in response to war, government corruption, struggles for reproductive freedom, and racial tension -- all while fighting for greater representation and opportunities for women in the art world. Gracefully mixing bold historical accounts, poignant personal narratives, and nuanced introspection about writing, identity, family, and dreams, Moore illuminates a breadth of women's struggles and triumphs. She writes of her volunteer work in New York City's first legal abortion clinic, her own nearly fatal incomplete abortion in Guinea, and the abuse she experienced in a relationship with her former art teacher. She narrates her work organizing protests against the Museum of Modern Art, creating politically charged exhibitions with her peers in New York and beyond, and publishing a collaborative feminist art journal with the Heresies Collective.
