As one of the pioneers on New York’s experimental art scene in the 1960s the American artist Lee Lozano (1930-1999) was among the most striking and noteworthy artists of her generation. She became known and appreciated for the energy of her works, her daring figures and her untiring investigations of the body and related issues of gender. In the course of just a few years she created a unique and wide-ranging oeuvre consisting of paintings, drawings and text-based works before – just as intensely as she had made her appearance on the art scene – she radically left it again in 1972. The exhibition presents around 120 drawings and paintings from the artist’s formative period 1959–1964. It offers a picture of an artist who was experimental in both subjects and style, and who in her works pointed to the stereotyped gender attitudes of her time through humorous, grotesque and challenging representations of the body.
