Lynda Benglis | Artforum 1974

November 22, 2011

In the notorious, 1974 Artforum magazine spread, Lynda Bengalis angles her oiled naked body toward the camera, and places one hand on her hip, as the other hand brandishes a flesh-colored, double-headed dildo between her legs.  A derisory commentary by an alpha-female of the art world on the snarled relationships between critical interest and controversy, art world machismo and erotic self-promotion, creative production and commerce.
