Joanna Frueh (born 1948) is not only a performance artist but also a distinguished critic and historian on feminist issues. She recently completed editing an award-winning book titled Feminist Art Crticism: An Anthology, which is only one in a large series of writings. With a combination of criticism and personal history, intellect and physicality, Frueh's unique form of critical expression combines 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. She received a PhD from the University of Chicago.
