Hannah Wilke: Art For Life’s Sake

One of the foremost artists to emerge in the 1960s, Hannah Wilke was a trailblazer who was as invested in advancing the role of women in society as she was in developing an exceptional artistic practice. She stands as a pivotal figure in postwar American art for her role in shaping dialogues around art and feminism. Perhaps most significantly, she developed a uniquely feminist iconography that centers the female body and pleasure, which had been long excluded from art history. Wilke’s bold and distinctive work—formally inventive and conceptually rigorous—pushed against prevailing norms around gender and sexuality while also reflecting on the human condition more broadly. She brought to these subjects a witty and irreverent critique.
