Lynda Benglis

The huge reference retrospective monograph: a complete overview of Lynda Benglis’ work and life from the late 1960s to the present day, with more than 350 illustrations, about 20 historical or commissioned essays, an interview, famous and unseen archival material (magazine articles, photographs, letters, installation shots), and a complete chronology.

“Seeing Lynda Benglis’s ad in Artforum in 1974 was one of the most pivotal moments of my career. I was in college in Buffalo & even the Albright-Knox Art Gallery which was one of the few local places to buy the magazine (and right across from where I went to school), had ripped out that page in the issues they were selling (I must have bought mine in NYC). She kicked ass!” – Cindy Sherman

Since more than 30 years, Lynda Benglis (born in 1941 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, lives and works in New York), one of America’s most important artists, a leader of Post Minimalism along with Richard Serra, Eva Hesse and Bruce Nauman, explores in her work a wide range of techniques and mediums, from wax abstract painting, to latex, polyurethane or metal sculpture, through video and performance footage.
This formal diversity expresses a complex and radical thinking about body, gender identity, representation of women and male dominance, beyond her feminist icon status since a series of sulphurous advertisements published with Robert Morris in the 1970s, including the famous and controversial ad in Artforum featuring her aggressively posed with a giant dildo and wearing only a pair of sunglasses.

Texts by Dave Hickey, Cindy Sherman, Robert Pincus-Witten, Richard Meyer, Annette Messager, Elisabeth Lebovici, Judith Tannenbaum, Caroline Hancock, Franck Gautherot, Laura Hoptman, Ron Gorchov, Keith Sonnier, John Baldessari, Diana Franssen.

An incredible book on an artist unlike any other!

When Attitudes Become Form
Bern 1969 / Venice 2013

 

Published by Fondazione Prada
Edited by Germano Celant. Introduction by Miuccia Prada. Preface by Miuccia Prada, Patrizio Bertelli. Text by Gwen L. Allen, Pierre Bal Blanc, Claire Bishop, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Charles Esche, Boris Groys, Jens Hoffmann, Chus Martínez, Glenn Phillips, Christian Rattemeyer, Dieter Roelstraete, Anne Rorimer, Terry Smith, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Francesco Stocchi, Jan Verwoert. Interviews with Thomas Demand, Rem Koolhaas.

In a daring act of historical reconstruction, the curator Germano Celant, in dialogue with Thomas Demand and Rem Koolhaas, has recreated Harald Szeemann’s epochal “Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form”, held at the Bern Kunsthalle in 1969, and installed by Celant at the magnificent Ca’ Corner della Regina in Venice in June–November 2013. Szeemann’s show was a dialogue with the Bern Kunsthalle, and Celant has reprised its spirit by placing the works in dialogue with the Ca’ Corner della Regina–a very different building, in its Venetian grandeur, to the Kunsthalle.

This publication is divided into three parts: the first reproduces a complete collection of photo documentation of the original exhibit in 1969, many photographs previously unpublished, taken by photographers during the exhibition (Claudio Abate, Leonardo Bezzola, Balthasar Burkhard, Siegfried Kuhn, Dölf Preisig, Harry Shunk and Albert Winkler); the second compiles essays and interviews on Celant’s project (texts by Gwen L. Allen, Pierre Bal Blanc, Claire Bishop, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Charles Esche, Boris Groys, Jens Hoffmann, Chus Martínez, Glenn Phillips, Christian Rattemeyer, Dieter Roelstraete, Anne Rorimer, Terry Smith, Mary Anne Staniszewski, Francesco Stocchi, Jan Verwoert. Interviews with Thomas Demand, Rem Koolhaas) and the third includes the installation views of the show in Venice. The book is completed by a “Register” of works included in both shows.
A heavy, scientific volume of almost 800 pages that has become an invaluable reference for those interested in Conceptual Art, Minimalism, Art Povera, Land Art, Curatorial history, and much more.
