Niki de Saint Phalle
One of the foremost women artists of the twentieth-century, Niki de Saint Phalle worked as a sculptor, painter, and filmmaker between the late 1950s and early 2000s. During her distinguished career, she developed a self-taught and very personal aesthetic in pieces that ranged from intimate to monumental, while also notably collaborating with Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jean Tinguely, among others. This exhibition brings visibility to an artist’s oeuvre that is not yet well known in Utah, but was recently celebrated in retrospectives at Paris’ Le Grand Palais and the Guggenheim Bilbao. Her work demonstrates remarkable fight and determination, accomplishing things unlike any other female artist of her generation.
