David Lewis Gallery

In honor of LES Art Week, David Lewis presents the work of pioneering feminist artist Mary Beth Edelson. For the past 50 years Edelson has created iconic artworks – ranging from photography, painting, sculpture and drawing to performance, printmaking, collages and murals – often using her own body as canvas and subject matter. As Edelson is never afraid to address the controversial, among the works featured in this exhibition is a bold portrait of artist Ana Mendieta around whose tragic death swirl rumors of her husband's involvement.
