This publication marks the first extensive UK exhibition of the highly influential New York based video and performance artist, Joan Jonas.
Jonas has worked steadily in the area of performance, video and installation since the 1960s, and has proved to be one of the most influential pioneers in this area of artistic practice.
The exhibition is a collaboration between two venues: John Hansard Gallery (Southampton), and Wilkinson Gallery (London) during 2004 – 2005.
Works included range from early films and performance documentation to two new major installation works. This publication contains extensive texts which examine her work both past and present, and contextualise it within a broader cultural framework.
