She Accepts the Proposition: Women Gallerists and the Redefinition of Art in Los Angeles, 1967-1978The mid sixties to the late seventies marked a particularly fertile, experimental period in which several new art movements rapidly emerged to challenge customary notions of audience reception. While early dealers such as Irving Blum and Henry Hopkins have been canonized for promoting innovative artists, the role of other galleries and dealers in the Los Angeles scene of that era is less well known. With She Accepts the Proposition, we examine the critical contribution of Los Angeles women art dealers in particular to the advancement of nontraditional art practices, in the period from 1967 to 1977.
