"This major looker of an exhibition catalog loosens up the warp and weft of conventional views of modern art–all those tight-knotted hierarchical categories (high versus low, art versus craft) on which our institutions and markets still rest–and demonstrates the universe of formal and conceptual brilliance that has always traveled on a parallel track. The sheer variety of work produced by more than 50 artists chosen by the book's editor, Lynne Cooke, will knock your socks off. (Just wait till you see what's happening in the field of basketry alone.) So will the visual imaginations of individual geniuses we already know like Anni Albers, Ruth Asawa, Gego, Lenore Tawney and Sheila Hicks, and the others we're introduced to here."– "New York Times, on "Best Art Books of 2023""
