Not For Sale:
Feminism and Art in the USA during the 1970s.
A video essay by Laura Cottingham
ARTEXT is pleased to announce that we will be acting for the next year on behalf of Hawkeye Productions as the exclusive international distributor of Laura Cottingham's newly released 90-minute video essay: Not For Sale: Feminism and Art in the USA during the 1970s.
We undertake this responsibility with great enthusiasm for the video work we are representing, which we regard as the first serious visual record of the Feminist Art Movement of the 1970s in all of its aesthetic diversity.
We hope that the terms of purchase available through ARTEXT will facilitate and encourage
institutional and archival purchase of this important work:
1) Preview copies are available to U.S. institutions (and by special prior arrangement to overseas institutions).
2) Co-purchase by two institutions may easily be arranged for those operating with limited budgets.
3) Public performance rights will be assigned to all purchasors, thereby encouraging the sponsoring of public screenings of this important material.
NEW! Not For Sale is now also available for institutional rental for classroom use. Please inquire.
