Hillwood Art Gallery, New York

Nancy Grossman

First printing of this monographic book on the incredible work of American feminist artist, Nancy Grossman. Grossman is best known for her wood and leather heads, using the leather, as well as straps, zippers, and string, to create sculptures that appear bound and restrained. She describes her work as autobiographical, and while others have reviewed her work as seemingly sexual and reminiscent of sadism and masochism, Grossman says her work challenges the ideas of gender identity and gender fluidity and refer to her “bondage in childhood”. She is also well known for her mixed-media wall assemblages, drawings, collages and paintings, all of which are illustrated throughout this catalogue of her work from the late 1960s-early 1990s. Produced to accompany the first comprehensive survey of Grossman’s extensive provocative career that opened at the Hillwood Art Museum in 1991, this book also features texts throughout by feminist art historian, author, critic, educator, curator and co-founder of the Feminist Studio Workshop, Arlene Raven.
