Softcover, 23 x 30 cm
Texts by Maurizio Cattelan, Johanna Fateman, and Thomas Micchelli
This publication is the first major catalogue of the work of feminist artist Judith Bernstein, and was created in conjunction with the artist’s retrospective at Kunsthall Stavanger, Norway in 2016. A former Guerilla Girl and founding member of A.I.R Gallery, New York, Bernstein has worked consistently for over five decades despite censorship and periods of art world neglect. Titled Judith Bernstein Rising, the catalogue serves as the first publication to contextualize Bernstein’s vast oeuvre within the history of art, feminism, and the American socio-political climate of the late-20th century. The catalogue presents a variety of archival images tracing the artist’s fifty-year career from the 1960s through the present day, as well as installation images from the exhibition at Kunsthall Stavanger, and commissioned texts from artist and writer Thomas Micchelli, and Le Tigre band member and writer Johanna Fateman, as well as an interview by artist Maurizio Cattelan.
