ROSALYN DREXLER: WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?. Rose Art Museum, Waltham, 2016. Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co., New York. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 240 pp. 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781941366097 In English.
Publisher's description: Rosalyn Drexler has always moved between worlds. In the late 1950s and early '60s, she showed sculpture at New York's Reuben Gallery, a gathering place for artists like Allan Kaprow and Claes Oldenburg who combined installation and performance with traditional media. Drexler took part in Happenings at Reuben Gallery and at Judson Church (years after her own quasi-performance as a female wrestler, memorialized by Andy Warhol in the 1962 series Album of a Mat Queen). Drexler's collages and large-format paintings of the 1960s open the category of Pop art to technology and politics in a way that feels contemporary today, crossing hard-edge painting with depictions of sex, violence, race and gender role-playing in film and media. Her writing also crosses high and low genres, comprising novels both experimental and popular, avant-garde theater and writing for television (including an Emmy-winning Lily Tomlin special). In addition to a comprehensive selection of Drexler's major paintings, Who Does She Think She Is? also recovers the artist's early sculptures, recently rediscovered and not exhibited since 1960.
