A known feminist and anti-war activist, Nancy Spero decided to make women the sole subject of her artwork since 1976. Now, Spero’s repertoire of female figures run, dance, crawl, tumble, and strut across the page in the exhibition From Victimage to Liberation: Works from the 1980s & 1990s at Galerie Lelong. This rarely-seen selection of Spero’s collaged narratives shows women transformed from historical contexts of suffering and subordination into protagonists in charge their own destinies.
The exhibition opens to the public today, January 2, 2013. Don’t miss the opening reception, which will take place on January 10, 2013, at Galerie Lelong.
