In this video interview, Veronica Roberts, Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Painting and Sculpture, discusses her exhibition Lee Bontecou: All Freedom in Every Sense, one of the exhibitions celebrating the landmark publication of Modern Women: Women Artists at The Museum of Modern Art. One of the key artists to emerge during the 1950s, Lee Bontecou works in multiple mediums, including sculpture, drawing, and printmaking, all of which are featured in this concise survey. Veronica did a great deal of exciting new research for this show, and it’s a real pleasure to hear her talk about the artist’s remarkable work and equally remarkable career, with a particular focus on the extraordinary suspended sculpture that is the exhibition’s centerpiece.
