Lynda Benglis

Filled with glorious full-colour photography, this volume presents readers with a full monograph of controversial American sculptor Lynda Benglis’ first solo European exhibition, which was held at the Irish Museum of Modern Art between 4th November 2009 and 24th January 2010. Spanning more than 40 years of work, the exhibition surveys her extraordinary creative output – from her early poured latex and polyurethane sculptures and wax reliefs of the late 1960s, through her metallised pleated sculptures of the 1980s and ’90s, to her more recent works in polyurethane such as The Graces, 2003-05. This volume also features a number of essays from noted scholars and art critics, archival material such as magazine articles, letters, installations shots, and self-promotion work – including her infamous ‘dildo’ advertisement in Artforum magazine in 1974 – an in-depth chronology of her work, and an interview with the artist.
