Nancy Spero

This year, Prestel is scheduled to publish Christopher Lyon, Nancy Spero: The Work, a “definitive monograph” (Amazon).

An edition of Torture of Women was published in April by Siglio (Amazon). It includes Diana Nemiroff, “Fourteen Meditations of Torture of Women by Nancy Spero”; Luisa Valenzuela, “Symmetries”; and an excerpt from Elaine Scarry,  The Body in Pain: The Making and Unmaking of the World.

Writings by the artist include Spero and Arkesteijn, eds., Codex Spero / Nancy Spero: Selected Writings and Interviews 1950-2008 (De Appel and Roma, 2008); “The Discovered Uncovered,” in Bee and Schor, eds., M/E/A/N/I/N/G: An Anthology of Artists’ Writings, Theory, and Criticism (Duke, 2000); and “The Art of Getting To Equal,” in Duplessis and Snitow, eds., The Feminist Memoir Project: Voices From Women’s Liberation (Three Rivers, 1998).

Phaidon’s 1996 monograph included contributions from Jon Bird, Jo Anna Isaak, Sylvère Lotringer, Stanley Kubrick, and Alice Jardine. Bird organized Otherworlds: The Art of Nancy Spero and Kiki Smith in 2003 (Amazon; review by Morgan Falconer). Also:
