Item description for Robin Kahn: The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Art by Robin Kahn...
The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Art is a new book built on the pages of an old one, a smart, witty take on art history collaged over the text and images of a 1950s introduction to fine art for "club women." Conceptual artist Robin Kahn has bound that palimpsest as a board-book for beginners looking for a fresh and informed entry into contemporary art through the work of a woman artist and curator, and her work reflects changes in both the art world and its audience. A section on recommendations that once directed readers to Mondrian, Jacques-Louis David and Degas now suggests they check out, among others listed by category, "Mannerist: Lorna Simpson"; "Screamer: Yoko Ono;" and "Dildo Strapper: Lynda Benglis." The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Art is a comic alternative to art history, an art-historically minded piece of art, and a beautifully crafted, colored and reproduced work in itself.
