  • About the Book

Inspired by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro's landmark 1972 installation and performance space Womanhouse, and featuring work by 36 international artists, Women House challenges conventions about gender and the domestic space. Womanhouse was the first female-centered art installation to appear in the Western world. In Women House, women artists working from the 1960s to today examine the persistence of stereotypes about the house as a feminine space through photography, sculpture, installation and video works. In Walking House (1989), Laurie Simmons creates a playful yet disconcerting image of the female body being consumed by expectations. Laure Tixier's series Plaid House (Maquette) (2005-11) explores domestic architecture from worldwide cultures in felt sculptures that resemble miniature residential homes, tents, towers or high-rise buildings.
