“Wet is a great read. Schor is gloriously fierce, often hilarious, and has boldly trod on powerful, or at least fashionably clad toes.” — Erica Rand, Bookforum
“Wet is a subversive take on the aesthetics and politics of art.” — Ms.
“A fascinating collection of her best writings. . . .” — Katy Deepwell, n.paradoxa
“In 20 essays divided into four primary sections – “Masculinity,” “Femininity and Feminism,” “Teaching,” and “Painting” – Schor manages to mesh and unravel the prevailing issues of art and feminist history and theory arisen over the last decade with absolute authority. … Schor walks many lines securely – balancing formalism and feminism, theory and practice, public advocacy and private artistry – and finds ways to honor and integrate opposites, without ever getting wishy-washy. ... Schor presents history – of feminism and of art – so truthfully, with so much of its original integrity still intact, and with so little agenda interference that it can behave like poetry.” — Jennifer Liese, Provincetown Arts
“Where have all the feminists gone? Let us hope they are all putting together collections like this one by Schor, a painter, writer and teacher at the Parsons School of Design…. Feminist, artists and other keepers of our subversives fires will certainly find a home in this inspiring collection.” — Publishers Weekly
“Far more than a collection of random essays, Schor’s deliciously titled Wet is a cohesive and lively group of writings addressing issues central to the practice and theory of postmodern art. One is compelled to respect her passion and eloquence and to enjoy her rhetorical flair. Wet is a ‘must’ for all scholars, critics, and artists interested in the contemporary art scene.” — Amelia Jones, author of Postmodernism and the En-gendering of Marcel Duchamp
“Mira Schor’s collected critical art essays are witty, insightful, incisive. As artist, writer, and magazine editor, she shows us cracks in the art world’s walls. She is up-to-date, on target. In a controversial field, she is a bold and confrontational critic.” — Nancy Spero, artist
