Name that book: does art have to be bellicose?

At some point in the last five years or so, I read a recent book about art that took a critical look at -- for lack of a better term -- art machismo: the notion that good art is merciless and disruptive and basically must take a confrontational stance. I'm about 80% sure it was written by a woman. It was pretty accessible; I think I found it through a review in a general-interest publication. What might I have read?
