Accompanying the inaugural exhibition at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel in March 2016, ‘Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947 – 2016’ ambitiously traces ways in which women have changed the course of art by deftly transforming the language of sculpture since the postwar period. Made by 34 artists over the past seventy years, the nearly 100 works reveal their makers inventing radically new forms and processes that privilege solo studio practice, tactility, and the idiosyncrasies of the artist’s own hand.

The exhibition is curated by Paul Schimmel and Jenni Sorkin, art historian, critic, and Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art History at the University of California, Santa Barbara. This book includes original contributions by Sorkin, as well as Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Executive Director of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, and former Chief Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and Anne M. Wagner, art historian, critic, and University of California, Berkeley, Class of 1936 Professor Emerita.
