Lee Lozano: Slip, Slide, Splice
This book accompanies an exhibition of work by the inventive American artist Lee Lozano at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh. A major figure in the New York art scene of the 1960s and early ’70s, Lozano took a radical approach to art and life. Her systematic refusal to engage with the institutions and support structures of the art world led to her work being neglected and gradually less well known, but recently this has begun to change. By bringing together paintings, drawings, language pieces, and notes on making paintings that have only just come to light, the book furthers the reassessment of her oeuvre. Included is a new essay on Lozano’s work by Helena Vilalta.
