Spero’s Touch

Nancy Spero "The Bug, Helicopter, Victim", 1966

Lecture by Jon Bird, professor of Art and Critical Theory at Middlesex University

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1926, Nancy Spero is a pioneer of feminist art and a key figure in the New York protest scene in the 1960s and 70s. She can be placed among other feminist artists such as Martha Rosler and Adrian Piper, to whom MACBA has already devoted retrospective exhibitions.

With a career as an artist and activist that spans more than 50 years, Spero continues even today to be an example of engagement in our current political, social and cultural scene, which she always questions and defies. The recent violent events with which her country has become involved in recent years have had the effect of bringing her work to the fore once more, with important exhibitions in Europe and the United States, the latest at the Venice Biennial.
