Period & Style
Exclusive Episode #028: Leon Golub's Gigantomachy II (1966) and Nancy Spero’s Maypole: Take No Prisoners (2007) in her New York studio. A pioneer of feminist art, Nancy Spero's work since the 1960s is an unapologetic statement against the pervasive abuse of power, Western privilege, and male dominance. Executed with a raw intensity on paper and in ephemeral installations, her work often draws its imagery and subject matter from current and historical events such as the torture of women in Nicaragua, the Holocaust, and the atrocities of the Vietnam War.
