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!

Robert Nickas
Live Free or Die


Robert Nickas is a critic, freelance curator, and editor of the Index magazine (New York). He is also one of the free spirits who were nurtured by the libertarian punk slogan “do it yourself”. In this collection, covering twenty years of activity, Nickas combines humour with intellectual rigor, as well as a reliable historical memory to broach works of personalities as diverse as Maurizio Cattelan, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Cady Noland, John Miller, Haim Steinbach or Andy Warhol, by way of David Cronenberg, Melvins, Père Ubu and numerous others, also slipping in untimely observations on the alleged death of painting, the “Golden 80s” of New York art world, and the role of the exhibition curator.

Working independently, Robert Nickas has realized more than forty exhibitions for galleries and museums since 1984. He recently co-curated the Biennale of Lyon in France (with the Consortium team), is an editor of Artforum, and a Guest Curator at P.S.1 in New York.
His writings and interviews have appeared in Afterall and Sound Collector, as well as in numerous catalogues and monographs – Felix Gonzalez-Torres, On Kawara, Olivier Mosset, Cady Noland, Andy Wharol.
