Martha Wilson
à Halifax, 1972–1974

Past: October 20, 2021 → January 31, 2022

A unique personality in the history of American art, Martha Wilson (born in 1947 in Philadelphia) is one of the first artists to use her body to question social representations of women. Her pioneering work created in the early 1970s can be categorised as conceptual practices with a radical irony.

Covering the period of her stay in Halifax, from 1972 until her relocation to New York in 1974, the Centre Pompidou exhibition provides an insight into the development of these radical acts.
The exhibition is accompanied by a series of events, performances and meetings with the artist.
