This exhibition explores a transformative ten-year period in Saint Phalle’s work when she embarked on two significant series: the Tirs, or “shooting paintings,” and the powerful Nanas, lively sculptures of the female form. Affirming the artist’s place in postwar art history, this show highlights these prescient works of performative, participatory, and feminist art, as well as her transatlantic projects and collaborations. Niki de Saint Phalle in the 1960s brings together major paintings, assemblages, and sculptures from this prolific chapter in the artist’s career, as well as extensive film and photographic documentation from the Menil Collection Archives. Niki de Saint Phalle in the 1960s is co-curated by Michelle White, Senior Curator, the Menil Collection, and Jill Dawsey, PhD, Curator, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. A catalogue for the exhibition will be available September 2021.
