Abstract

The late Hannah Wilke was a feminist artist whose work chronicled the ever-changing thoughts about women's bodies and self-image. Wilke was a performance artist and also produced sculpture, videos and photographs throughout a 30-year career. She was among the first to feature female genitalia prominently in her art, and competed with Judy Chicago in introducing a series of artwork highlighting vulvas. Toward the end of her career, after she had been diagnosed with lymphoma, she produced a series of 13 self-portrait photographs displaying her body after chemotherapy and bone marrow treatments.
