2010-30Published by the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in 2006 – 2007, this print portfolio assembles 20 women artists important to the feminist art movement of the 1970s. A moment critical to the development of contemporary art, this first wave of feminist art-making employed the gender of the artist as subject matter. Included in Femfolio are prints by Eleanor Antin, Joyce Kozloff, Faith Ringgold, Miriam Shapiro, Carolee Schneemann, Nancy Spero, June Wayne, and Martha Wilson, among others.
