50 Contemporary Women Artists: Groundbreaking Contemporary Art from 1960 to Now

John Gosslee & Heather Zises, Editors
Foreword by Elizabeth Sackler

50 Contemporary Women Artists is a publication about contemporary women artists and architects who have made groundbreaking contributions in their respective fields. The book promotes women in an ongoing dialogue through the exploration of their work and process, and offers a fresh perspective on feminism and notions of cultural power. Pluralistic in its approach, the survey also includes a foreword by Elizabeth Sackler, founder of the Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.

50 Contemporary Women Artists has been a passion project since its inception in 2015. Created by John Gosslee, founder of Fjords Review, and Heather Zises  curator and founder of READart the idea of the book was seeded by the Fjords Women’s Edition (Fall 2015) in which John invited Heather to curate art work by women to be paired with poetry and prose by women. 

The 50 Contemporary Women Artists book is available at select locations, including MoMA Design Store, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Cleveland Museum of ArtBrooklyn MuseumRizzoli New YorkAmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-a-Million and Indiebound.
