Jo Applin on Lee Lozano
On the occasion of the exhibition ‘Lee Lozano’, we invited Jo Applin to walk through the galleries and talk about the artist and her work. Selecting key works from the 41 drawings and paintings on show, Applin gives an insight into both Lozano's life and her work; contextualizing her practice and highlighting her response to the constraints of constitutional systems, disrupting dynamics of gender, power, money and politics.
Professor Jo Applin teaches modern and contemporary art at The Courtauld Institute of Art in London. Her book ‘Lee Lozano: Not Working’, was awarded the Suzanne and James Mellor Book Prize from the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington D.C.
On view at Hauser & Wirth Somerset 3 October 2020 – 10 January 2021, ‘Lee Lozano’ focuses on early paintings and drawings created between 1962 – 1963.
