"Lee Bontecou: A Retrospective"
2004-07-30 until 2004-09-27
Museum of Modern Art
New York, NY, USA

Lee Bontecou: A Retrospective, co-organized by the UCLA Hammer Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, is the most comprehensive exhibition ever assembled of the work of this influential 20th century American artist-one of the few women artists to receive major recognition in the 1960s. Drawn from private and public collections as well as from Bontecou's own holdings, this exhibition features not only her early and celebrated welded steel sculptures but also her lesser-known later work, including pieces only recently completed.

Bontecou's powerful constructions incorporate a variety of figurative, organic, and mechanistic references, suggesting states of transformation between the natural and the man-made, order and chaos, delicacy and ferocity.

The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, in conjunction with Ann Philbin, Director of the UCLA Hammer Museum, and organized for The Museum of Modern Art by Lilian Tone, Assistant Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture. The exhibition is sponsored nationally by Altria. The national tour is made possible by The Henry Luce Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, Friedrike Merck, and Sarah-Ann and Werner H. Kramarsky. The accompanying catalogue is made possible in part by Agnes Gund and Daniel Shapiro and The Ruth and Murray Gribin Foundation.
