Published by Yale University Press. Text by Steven Brown and Georgiana Uhlyarik. The essays published here - as well as a roundtable discussion by seven leading contemporary female artists - overturn the traditional perception of Stettheimer as an artist of mere novelties. Her work is linked not only to American modernism and the New York bohemian scene before World War II but also to a range of art practices active today. Flamboyant and epicurean, she was an astute documenter of New York and parodist of her social milieu; her highly decorative scenes borrowed from Surrealism and contributed to the beginnings of a feminist aesthetic.

Thinking through early twentieth-century cartoons, the kaleidoscopic drawings of Saul Steinberg, the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and other children's entertainment, Puddle, Pothole, Portal explores the coexistence of disparate elements within shared spaces. Gags betray complex meanings and sociopolitical satire, and unrelated objects, locales and avatars interact in the same dimension. As screens, passageways and shadows populate both physical and virtual realms, we question whether they are reflections or traces of the objective world, obstructions, fantasies or entryways into other realms. Contributing artists are Olga Balema, Joachim Bandau, Camille Blatrix, Teresa Burga, Antoine Catala, Abigail DeVille, Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys, Judith Hopf, Jamian Juliano-Villani, Allison Katz, Mark Leckey, Maria Loboda, Win McCarthy, Danny McDonald, Marlie Mul, Mick Peter, Chadwick Rantanen, Lucie Stahl, Saul Steinberg, Keiichi Tanaami, Lina Viste Grønli and Jordan Wolfson.
