Lynda Benglis. Now. 1973

Lynda Benglis Now 1973

  • Not on view

While Benglis's primary medium is sculpture, there was a period in the 1970s when she worked extensively in video, a new medium of the time. In this work sexual roles are not only examined up close but are also mocked, in a chaotic burlesque that captures a brash aspect of feminist thinking.
