Catalogue for The Distaff Side, an exhibition curated by Melva Bucksbaum on view at The Granary, Sharon, Connecticut. The Distaff Side is a survey of works by women artists from the collection of Melva Bucksbaum and Raymond Learsy. Among the more than 100 artists represented in the exhibition are Marina Abramović, Louise Bourgeois, Moyra Davey, Jenny Holzer, Käthe Kollwitz, Barbara Kruger, Mika Rottenberg, Cindy Sherman, Shinque Smith, Mickalene Thomas, and Zanele Muholi. With essays by Ryan Frank, Steven Learner, Joan Simon, and Caitlin Smith and an interview with Melva Bucksbaum by Elisabeth Sussman. Designed by Hans Cogne and printed at Meridian Printing in an edition of 1,500. 240 pages, hardcover, clothbound, color illustrations. Published by The Granary. Release date: February 18, 2014. 10 1/2 x 8 3/8 x 1 1/4 inches. 2 pounds, 14 ounces. The works in the exhibition range in date from 1921 to 2013 and encompass diverse mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, video, installation, drawing, and printmaking. The artists come from Europe, South America, Africa, Asia, and throughout the United States, and they include established figures of international renown as well as emerging artists and those known locally. "Through her curatorial eye and her perceptive and at times provocative installation groupings," Joan Simon writes in her catalogue essay, "Melva Bucksbaum critically explores the ongoing conversation between past and present, between artists, between artworks and those who tend them, and between exhibitions and their publics, notably placing the women at the forefront. A bold accomplishment in its own right, The Distaff Side-as well as the collections from which it is drawn-offers an example for galleries and museums to note and perhaps also to follow."
