Women and Multimedia


A 2016 Living Archives publication from the League’s Feminist Caucus

From the introduction by editor Penn Kemp:

Here’s an anthology that surges with energy: one medium bounces off another to create a resonating concert of variety and scope. The essays make a fascinating study of what is possible when one art form meets another in a kind of synaesthesia: one medium is perceived in terms of another. These pieces are not just lifted off the page: they are singing, dancinc spheres of possibility, sparking new connections. Luckily, humans “remain incorrigibly verbal creatures who love to explain things”: Women and Multimedia is the happy result of that desire to interpret one art through another.”

With texts by Di Brandt, Terry Ann Carter, Moe Clark, Penn Kemp, Jude Neale, and Cathy Petch.
