Description
Cindy Nemser is an art and theater critic largely known for her involvement in the feminist art movement of the 1970s. She was the editor of The Feminist Art Journal from 1972 to 1977 and wrote the acclaimed book Art Talk: Conversations With 12 Women Artists. Nemser's papers contain her writings, including unpublished articles and novels, correspondence with many artists, art critics, and book editors, and an extensive collection of Nemser's taped interviews with artists and pioneers of the feminist art movement.
Background
Cindy Nemser was born in 1937 in New York. She found her love of art at a young age, and although she did not pursue a career as an artist, she never left the arts, instead becoming an art and theater critic as well as a proponent of the feminist art movement of the 1970s. She holds both a bachelor's (1958) and a master's (1964) degree in English Literature from Brooklyn College and a master's degree (1966) in Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University.
