Overview

FEMINAE: Typographic Voices of Women by Women is the catalog of its namesake exhibition, an installation of posters created over the past fifty years and curated from the archives of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, Los Angeles, CA. The exhibition was presented by the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography in their South Campus Gallery located at ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, CA in Spring, 2018.

Description

FEMINAE: Typographic Voices of Women by Women, an exhibition of posters created over the past fifty years and curated from the archives of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, presented an opportunity to examine the work of several women artists and art collectives that addressed issues including voting rights, violence against women, gender inequality, and more; spanning international, cross-cultural, and socioeconomic borders.

As reflected in the artists' and curators' essays included in this catalog of the exhibition, some of the work stems from personal experiences, while others are inspired by experiences that are more universally shared by all women. Included are iconic works by such artists as Barbara Kruger, Sister Corita Kent, and the Guerrilla Girls.

The book was edited by Gloria Kondrup, Executive Director of the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography; with essays by: Carol Wells, Linda Lucero, Jacinta Bunnell, Linda Kiveu, Wendy Murray, and Gloria Kondrup.
