Conceptual artist Robin Kahn has bound that palimpsest as a board-book for beginners looking for a fresh and informed entry into contemporary art through the work of a woman artist and curator, and her work reflects changes in both the art world and its audience. A section on recommendations that once directed readers to Mondrian, Jacques-Louis David and Degas now suggests they check out, among others listed by category, Mannerist: Lorna Simpson- Screamer: Yoko Ono- and Dildo Strapper: Lynda Benglis. The Intelligent Womans Guide to Art is a comic alternative to art history, an art-historically minded piece of art, and a beautifully crafted, colored and reproduced work in itself.
