Frieze Female Artists 2017 | British Vogue

Throughout her career, 75-year-old American artist Lynda Benglis has experimented with unconventional materials in her work, exploring ideas of femininity and masculinity; nature and form. She is perhaps best known for her use of latex, which she would pour directly on to the floor creating large, lava-like sculptures. In 1974 the art provocateur caused controversy when she photographed herself nude for Artforum. At Frieze Masters, head to Thomas Dane which will be exhibiting some of her most significant works, including photographs and films as well as sculpture. Benglis will also give a talk as part of the Frieze Masters talks programme on Thursday 5.
