INTERSECTIONS: WOMEN ARTISTS/SURREALISM/MODERNISM. Ed. by Patricia Allmer. Manchester University Press, 2016. Rethinking Art's Histories. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 326 pp. with 72 ills. (53 col.). 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9780719096488 In English.
Publisher's description: Featuring new essays by established and emerging scholars, Intersections: Women artists/surrealism/modernism redefines conventional surrealist and modernist canons by focusing critical attention on women artists working in and with surrealism in the context of modernism. In doing so it redefines critical understanding of the complex relations between all three terms. The essays address work produced in a wide variety of international contexts and across several generations of surrealist production by women closely connected to the surrealist movement or more marginally influenced by it. Intersections explores work in a wide range of media, from painting and sculpture to film and fashion, by artists including Susan Hiller, Maya Deren, Birgit Jurgenssen, Aube Elleouet, Dorothea Tanning, Claude Cahun, Elsa Schiaparelli, Joyce Mansour, Leonor Fini, Mimi Parent, Lee Miller, Leonora Carrington, Ithell Colquhoun and Eileen Agar.
