Nancy Spero



In a groundbreaking career of over 50 years, Nancy Spero (1926–2009) made the female experience central to her art and challenged aesthetic and political conventions.  Her radical, pioneering career encompassed many significant visual and cultural movements from Conceptual Art to Post-Modernism to Feminism.

Major monographic exhibitions of Spero’s work have been shown at the Musée National d'art Moderne Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Centro Galego de Arte Contemporanea, Santiago de Compostela, Spain; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, among many others.  She was featured in numerous critical group shows and biennials—including the Biennial of Sao Paulo (2010), Venice Biennale (2007), Gwangju Biennale (2000), Documenta X (1997) and the Whitney Biennial (1993).
