This publication complements the exhibition Andrea Bowers: #sweetjane at the Pomona College Museum of Art and the Pitzer College Art Galleries and represents an overview of the artist's work since 2006. It highlights Bowers' (born 1965) commitment to merging art and social activism with a focus on political and environmental issues. Grounded in the legacy of feminist art, Bowers' socially engaged work combines a hyper-conceptual and formalist approach with raw and uncompromising content. This publication weaves together multiple strands of the artist's practice to foreground her incisive vision, activism, and dedication to social justice. Andrea Bowers: #sweetjane, the exhibition of the Los Angeles-based artist's most recent body of work, examined the 2012 Steubenville, Ohio, high-school rape case, the subsequent trial and media, and activist reactions.
