Rachel Churner reviews artwork that is politically motivated and conceptually rigorous, often by queer and feminist artists. She writes on emerging artists, under-represented historical figures, and little-known bodies of work by more established artists. In the next year, she will focus on women artists who have actively produced work for over fifty years and who continue to influence new generations of artists and scholars.
