Published to accompany the first retrospective of her work organized by a US museum (Museum of Modern Art, NY, 2014), this publication presents Sturtevant as an artist who adopts style as her medium to expose aspects of art making, circulation and canonization.
Featuring works drawn from all periods of her career and previously unpublished sketches from her archive, it links Sturtevant's earliest repetitions to the video works she has produced since 1998, providing a comprehensive overview of her practice while situating it firmly within postwar American culture.
Sturtevant was born in Lakewood, Ohio, in 1924. She had her first solo show in 1965 at the Bianchini Gallery in New York. Solo exhibitions of her work have since been held at Deichtorhallen, Hamburg (1992), Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2004), Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris (2010) and Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2012). In 2011, Sturtevant received the Golden Lion for lifetime achievement at the 54th Venice Biennale.
