Joanna Frueh is not only a practicing performance artist but also a distinguished critic and historian on feminist issues. She has recently completed editing an award-winning book Feminist Art Crticism: An Anthology which is only one in a large series of writings. In a combination of criticism and personal history; intellect and physicality; Frueh’s unique form of critical expression interweaves scholarship with personal poetics.
Her articles, reviews, and performance texts have appeared in Art in America, Art Journal, AfterImage, High Performance, and New Art Examiner, among others. She has presented performances at museums, galleries, universities, and conferences nationwide. Frueh teaches at the University of Nevada, Reno and lectures widely in her areas of expertise.
