Creative Talks with Bridget Quinn, author of Broad Strokes: 15 Women who Made Art and Made History (in That Order)

Date/Time

10:30 AM until 12:00 PM

Description

In 1971 American art historian Linda Nochlin posed an astonishing question: “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” In subsequent decades, much has been discovered and debated, yet many of western history’s important women artists remain obscure. Bridget Quinn, author of Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order) provides a short corrective to this lamentable fact, and points the way forward.

Join us for a morning of art history and creative encouragement as Bridget talks about her recent publication, followed by a Q&A.

Bridget Quinn is the author of Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order), an Amazon pick for Best Art & Photography Books 2017 and a 2018 Amelia Bloomer List selection of recommended feminist literature from the American Library Association. Book Authority has named Broad Strokes one of its “Best Art History Books of All Time.” Her writing appears in Narrative magazine, the San Francisco ChronicleHyperallergic, Ms. Magazine and elsewhere. Her work has received three Pushcart nominations, and her essay “At Swim, Two Girls” was included in Best American Sports Writing 2013. Her next book Suffragist City, an illustrated history of the 19th Amendment and what happened next, is forthcoming in 2020 from Chronicle Books.

““A terrific essay collection with quick and pithy profiles of famous and not-famous women artists. ... Spunky, attitudinal, SMART writing.”
—Susan Stamberg, NPR”
