A few more artists whose work intrigued me:
Aurel Schmidt's intriguing painting addressing consumerism and masculinity. There's a larger image of the work on her wiki
Kate Gilmore's (feminist) video performance. Read about it on her page at the Whitney and view it here. Other films are available on her website.
Moving on to the abstract, there are Suzan Frecon's paintings. There's an apt review of a 2005 exhibition on the New York Times website.
I'll post a final selection in a few days.
