From Conceptualism to Feminism: Lucy Lippard's Numbers Shows 1969-74

£45.00

Product description

Softcover published by Afterall Books in the Exhibition Histories series, in association with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College and Van Abbemuseum. Distributed by Koenig Books, London. First edition, 2012.

Between 1969 and 1974, Lucy Lippard curated four exhibitions of contemporary art, which have become renowned as her "numbers shows." Each took the population of the city in which it was shown as its title: 557,087 in Seattle, 955,000 in Vancouver, 2,972,453 in Buenos Aires and c. 7,500, which opened in Valencia, California, before touring the U.S. and then travelling to London. 

From Conceptualism to Feminism follows Lippard's curatorial trajectory, analyzing her transition from a writer about art to a maker of exhibitions, and tracing her growing political engagement and involvement with feminism. Extensive photographic material is complemented by a major new essay by Cornelia Butler and interviews with Lucy Lippard, Seth Siegelaub and with artists in c. 7,500. 

With articles by Sabeth Buchmann, Cornelia Butler, Pip Day, Peter Plagens, Caroline Tisdall, and Griselda Pollock.

Like new except for a slight spine lean.
