Published by Pomona College Museum of Art. Edited with introduction by Frances K. Pohl. Foreword by Kathleen Howe. Text by Rosario Abate, Mirella Bentivoglio, Leslie Cozzi, Benjamin Kersten, John David O'Brien, Franca Zoccoli.
This book is the first museum publication in English on Italian artist Mirella Bentivoglio (born 1922). It includes critical essays by art historians Frances K. Pohl, Leslie Cozzi and Franca Zoccoli, and interviews with Bentivoglio and John David O'Brien, plus a bibliography. The book highlights work from the recent exhibition at the Pomona College Museum of Art, which surveyed nearly 50 years of the artist's work as an internationally renowned member of the Concrete and visual poetry movements. Including works in paper, stone, metal, wood, cloth, plastic and Plexiglass and with numerous previously unpublished images, it reveals the ways in which Bentivoglio engaged with many of the most significant formal and theoretical issues of postwar art--for example, the relationship between image and text, the impact of mass media and consumer culture, feminist critiques of patriarchy and artistic interventions in public spaces.
