SNIPER’S NEST: ART THAT HAS LIVED WITH LUCY R. LIPPARD

October 28, 1995 - December 22, 1995
CCS Bard Galleries

“Sniper’s Nest” was an exhibition of small works culled from a collection, including artist books, posters, postcards, and photographs, assembled by noted New York critic Lucy Lippard over the past thirty years. The exhibition included works by more than one hundred artists, including Judy Baca, Louise Bourgeois, Judy Chicago, Papo Colo, Hanne Darboven, Jimmie Durham, Philip Evergood, Leon Golub, Harmony Hammond, Eva Hesse, Luis Jimenez, Alex Katz, On Kawara, Sol LeWitt, Ana Mendieta, Robert Rauschenberg, Faith Ringgold, Robert Ryman, Juan Sanchez, Lorna Simpson, Jaune Quick-to-See-Smith, Nancy Spero, Michelle Stuart, Cecilia Vicéna, and Hannah Wilke. The exhibition considered the inherent qualities of an intimate collection of works given to Lippard as gifts by artists, family members, friends, and lovers. Incorporating excerpts from Lippard’s writings over thirty years, the “Snipers’s Nest” reflected upon the role this critic, feminist, cultural worker, mother, and activist has played in the American art scene over the last several decades.
