About Lynda Benglis

Lynda Benglis moved to New York at the apex of Minimalism in the 1960s. Using brightly colored polyurethane foam and incorporating wide-ranging influences, such as Abstract Expressionism, Process Art, Minimalism, Feminist art, geological forms, and ceremonial totems, Benglis developed her instantly recognizable sculptural language of undulating, oozing biomorphic forms. Along with other feminist artists, she challenged the cool, rationalist premise of the male-dominated Minimalist movement, refusing to accept limitations, whether political or aesthetic. In addition to sculpture, Benglis works in video and photography, and has used media interventions (such as a well known ad placed in Artforum in 1974, showing the artist nude with a dildo between her legs) to explore notions of power and gender relations.

American, b. 1941, Lake Charles, Louisiana , based in New York, New York
