Woman As Protagonist: The Art of Nancy Spero - To Soar II

Irene Sosa

1993, 45:00 minutes, Colour/B&W, English


Woman as Protaganist, The Art of Nancy Spero is an invigorating look at the 40-year career of acclaimed feminist artist Nancy Spero who, in her own words, is concerned with "rewriting the imaging of women through historical time". With Spero's own voice as narration, the documentary tracks her development as she matured against the grain of Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Pop Art when "there wasn't any room in the art world to make way for political or activist art." An important contribution to the history of contemporary art, Woman As Protagonist, The Art of Nancy Spero will be a valuable educational tool for university, art school and museum educators in studio arts, art history and women's studies.
