In a publication accompanying its namesake exhibition organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art (State U. of New York, Purchase), curator Princenthal introduces several critical essays drawing on thinkers from Freud to Derrida to examine feminism's contributions to deconstructivism. Artists represented who deconstruct gender identity, experience, and images include Dara Birnbaum, Adrian Piper, Martha Rosler, and Hannah Wilke. The catalog includes plates and a list of works in the exhibit, and a bibliography.
