Hannah Wilke (1940–1993) developed an unabashed, boundary-crossing art practice that included sculpture, photography, video, and works on paper. One of the foremost American artists to emerge in the 1960s, her experimental techniques and provocative new forms express the vitality and pleasures of the body. She applied a feminist critique to her era’s repressive norms of gender and sexuality to create work that affirms life. “I have always used my art to have life around me,” Wilke proclaimed. “Art is for life’s sake.”
