BAD GIRLS. New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, and Wight Art Gallery, University of California, Los Angeles, 1994. Published in association with MIT Press, Cambridge. 144 pp. with 84 ills. (7 col.). 22 x 19 cm. LC 93-87805 ISBN 0262700530 In English.
Documenting two concurrent exhibitions of recent works on gender-related themes by more than 100 American artists, this catalogue presents a diverse array of photographs, sculptures, drawings, installations and video pieces embodying provocative and often serio-comic challenges to traditional concepts of femininity. Four wide-ranging essays discuss the ambiguously "transgressive" attitudes reflected in the exhibited pieces, the significance of humor and theatricality in new feminist art, the impact of misappropriated media images and language on perceptions of race and gender, and the roles of Meret Oppenheim, Louise Bourgeois, Yoko Ono and other artists in the creation of a "bad girl" tradition.
