Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And
(1000 items available)
Conceptual performance artist Lorraine O'Grady burst into the contemporary art world in 1980 dressed in a gown made of 180 pairs of white gloves and wielding a chrysanthemum-studded whip. For the next three years, O’Grady documented her exploits as this incendiary fictional persona, visiting gallery openings and providing critiques of the racial politics at play in the New York art scene. This title provides a long-overdue close examination of O’Grady’s artistic and intellectual ambitions.
