Lee Lozano: Pulling out the Stops

Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid

31 May - 25 Sep 2017

Throughout the 1960s, and across only twelve years, Lee Lozano developed a radically provocative body of work. Her career unfolded alongside the emerging civil rights and anti-war movement and the protest, free and pacifist spirit that sprang up through the political landscape and aesthetics in America during that period. This retrospective surveys Lozano’s ability to understand and incorporate casuistry in a period which redefined the changing conditions of art and its progressive disintegration in life. The selection of works presented includes an exceptional volume of highly erotic drawings and paintings produced between 1961 and 1963, pieces which merge body organs and work utensils in an aggressive and devouring hybrid form. Find out more about the Lee Lozano exhibition from the Museo Reina Sofiá’s website.
