Eleanor Antin, Lee Lozano, Adrian Piper, Mierle Laderman Ukeles
Four women artists who contributed to the first flourishing of conceptual art in the late 1960s and early ’70s are the focus in this exhibition, which draws on the archives of Dorothee and Konrad Fischer, the German art dealers who played a major role in promoting the work of (mostly male) conceptual artists. Correspondence with the Fischers, along with works from the past five decades by Eleanor Antin, Lee Lozano, Adrian Piper and Mierle Laderman Ukeles, reveal how these artists consistently fought to make their voices heard – while developing their own innovative, socially engaged approaches to conceptualism.
