This event has ended.

Steven Kasher Gallery presents Joan Lyons: Works 1969-1987, a solo exhibition of the pioneering feminist artist. Lyons (b. 1937) is one of the major unsung photographers of her generation. The exhibition features nine of Lyons’ pivotal projects. Lyons’ groundbreaking work intuitively combines feminist theory and personal experience. Her work is intimate and introspective, and at the same time fully invested in the indexical quality of photography.

Lyons has employed a variety of demanding and obscure image-making processes. Her work incorporates offset lithography, proto-Xerography, Polaroid, screen-printing, photo-quilting and more. Almost all of the works in the show are completely unique and of museum quality.

Joan Lyons’s work has been exhibited at major institutions worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; DeCordova Museum; Arts Council of Great Britain; Center for Creative Photography; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, Sevilla; Art Gallery of Ontario; National Gallery of Canada and the Bibliothéque Nationale de France. Lyons’ work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Minneapolis Institute of Art; Norton-Simon Museum; J. Paul Getty Museum; Yale University Art Gallery; DeCordova Museum; Museum of Modern Art, New York and the National Gallery of Canada. Lyons has published over 30 editions of her artist’s books since 1972. A retrospective exhibition, Maker/Mentor: Selected Work from Four Decades, appeared at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center in 2007.
