Title: Framing Feminism : Art and the Women’s Movement 1970 - 1985 (The Book: edited and introduced by Rozsika Parker and Griselda Pollock. The Discussion: London ICA, 21 January)
Author: Clare Rendell

Review of the discussion held at the ICA to Launch the book, Framing Feminism. The review deals firstly with the discussion event, it then goes on to critique the publication with the author finishing the review by attempting to widen the debate towards what at this time is perceived to be “mainstream“ in art and the struggle for women for “recognition“ within it. An extract from the text: “The discussion, Framing Feminism was advertised by the ICA: “Artists Sutapa Biswas and Lubaina Himid discuss the past and future of feminist art in postmodernity with Griselda Pollock, co-editor of Framing Feminism.“ It was a badly organised event. Sutapa Biswas did not attend, no explanation was given for her absence, and there was no chairwoman to help develop the discussion beyond the criticism and defence of this particular book.”
