Joyce Kozloff is a painter and printmaker who first became known in the 1970s as a leader in the Pattern and Decoration Movement. In 1973, she was included in a seminal exhibition in New York, “Women Choose Women,” which was one of the first major attempts to break down institutional barriers for female artists in the art world. 40 years later, 13 of the women artists from the original “Women Choose Women” exhibition are featured in “Women Choose Women Again,” a show at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit curated by Mary Birmingham. For the new exhibition, artists picked other artists – and Joyce Kozloff chose her old friend, Judith Henry. Henry’s work as a photographer reflects upon women from high school girls to some of the most iconic women of the 20th century. State of the Arts visits the studios of both artists, as well as the Art Center.
