Lee Bontecou: A Retrospective
CHICAGO  •  Museum of Contemporary Art  •  Ongoing
The exhibition features approximately 70 sculptures and 80 drawings from private and public collections as well as from the artist's own holdings. It documents the complexity and scope of Bontecou's art, from the late 1950s through 2003, with many works that have rarely or never before been publicly shown during the past 30 years.

Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) created a strikingly innovative body of work, including large and small-scale sculptures and drawings in a range of media. The work that brought Bontecou early critical attention- created between 1959 and approximately 1967- incorporates her pioneering technique of stretching canvas over welded metal armatures to create wall reliefs that are both painting and sculpture.

The exhibition will travel to The Museum of Modern Art, Queens, New York, from July 28 to September 27, 2004.
