Through the Looking Glass provides readers with an informative record of the exhibition of self-portraits by Ana Mendieta, Carrie Mae Weems, and other leading women artists, held in 2003 at the Palmer Museum of Art as part of the Women's Self-Representation Project at The Pennsylvania State University.
Fully illustrated, this catalogue enables readers to revisit the provocative juxtaposition of Yayoi Kusama's Multi-Fabrics and Alba d'Urbano's Couture, or Martha Rosler's Semiotics of the Kitchen and several of Cindy Sherman's famed Film Stills. An essay by Sarah Rich addresses important questions about women's use of self-portraiture. How, for example, does self-representation by women engage with narcissism, a long-time trait long ascribed to the stereotypical "woman"? To what extent is gender a necessary element in women's self-portraiture?
