The Artist:

One of the founders of the American Pattern and Decoration movement in the 1970s, Joyce Kozloff is an internationally recognized painter, public artist and feminist whose long-term passions have been history, culture and the decorative and popular arts.  Kozloff's intricate designs can be seen in her opulent public artworks made from glass and marble mosaic and hand painted ceramic tiles, her mapped paintings and collages, frescoes, books, prints and installations. Her commitment to the revival of ornamentalism as a source for feminist art, plus her knowledge of art history and culture of Eastern and Western civilizations, place Kozloff among America's more original and engaging artists.

Kozloff graduated from Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with a B.F.A. in 1964 and gained an M.F.A. in 1967 from Columbia University in New York. Joyce Kozloff has won numerous awards and honors, including National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships in 1977 and 1985, a Rockefeller Foundation Grant in 1992 and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 2004.

Her traveling mid-career survey, Joyce Kozloff: Visionary Ornament opened at Boston University in 1986. Crossed Purposes, a traveling two-person exhibition with her husband Max Kozloff, sponsored by the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, originated in 1998.. Kozloff's works are included in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Library of Congress, the National Gallery of Art and Yale University Art Museum.

Joyce Kozloff has taught in many universities, most recently at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she was the Interim Director of the Graduate Painting Program during 2008-2009.  She has been a member of the Board of Governors at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine since 1998. (abstracted from:  http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/kozloff-joyce )Kozloff recently published a poster to coincide with the Jewish Museum's 2010 Shifting the Gaze: Painting and Feminism exhibit in which she participated. This poster, Naming II: A Feminist and Jewish Renaming of New York City Streets, represents an old map of New York City in which she has replaced the original street names with those of 497 WELL KNOWN Jewish WOMEN. Kozloff says: "In the 90s, I began to notice that everywhere in the world that I traveled, the streets were named after men and we know that whoever names has the power."  The image appears on one side and the list of artists/street names can be found on the back of the poster.

The Naming II poster is an antecedent to the After Gerhard Richter Project. In his original work, Richter, a prominent 20th and 21st century artist, listed the greates intellectuals in world history, only eight of whom were women. Kozloff 's After Gerhard Richter replaces all the male names with women-naming those who have made significant contributions in the same fields, i.e., architects, artists, composers, philosophers, and writers.

Now, 26 years later, the Rutgers Institute for Women and Art presents an exhibition of early Guerrilla Girls' posters and recent work by the Guerrilla Girls, GuerrillaGirlsBroadBand and Guerrilla Girls On Tour!  This exhibition is curated by Judith K.
