"At a time when Conceptual artists were outdoing themselves in dematerializing their objects and their activities, competing as to who could do less and still call it art, Lee outdid them all by doing less with an unmatched intensity that made it more. The contradiction at the heart of Lozano's text pieces is that we are told a great deal about her actions and very little about their ramifications; we have no access to her emotions, only to her 'brain-pain.' Her conceptual works are incredibly persona and at the same time models of privacy. She treated herself and her life as an objective experiment. Exposés on her activities and feelings were carefully selected. The emotional outbursts that accompanied even the most politicized women's work must have 'appalled' her indeed, although delving into women's lives was absolutely necessary to the feminist project. Lozano never allowed herself such sisterhood, or such an outlet."

Lucy R. Lippard, excerpted from Cerebellion and Cosmic Storms in Lee Lozano.

Lee Lozano

Published by Hatje Cantz
Text by Iris Müller-Westermann, Jo Applin, Lucy R. Lippard, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer.

The career of American artist Lee Lozano (1930-1999) was brief but extraordinarily intense. Throughout the 1960s, during the transition from Pop art to Minimalism and Conceptualism, and up until her self-imposed exile in the 1970s, Lozano created a genuinely radical and frequently obscene body of work that traversed a gamut of idioms. Her early paintings were executed in a messy cartoon style, oozing with violence and sexuality. By 1967, Lozano was responding to Minimalism and Op art with her abstract Wave paintings. It was also around this time that she initiated a series of actions that tested both the limits of art and acceptable conduct in society, such as smoking pot, masturbating and, mostly notoriously of all, boycotting women. This publication accompanies a retrospective of Lozano's works at Moderna Museet in Stockholm--works which after 40 years remain as witty, acerbic and shockingly fresh as ever.
