William N. Copley: Women

Author(s): Paul Kasmin Gallery; Claire Copley (Contribution by); William Copley (Artist)


William N. Copley: Women includes beautiful plate photography of works from every phase of the artist's career, revealing Copley's (1919-96) persistent and complex fascination with the female form, masculinity, voyeurism, politics, art history and more. A new text by Claire Copley, one of the artist's two daughters, addresses head-on the frank sexuality and complicated gender politics present in much of her father's work, in a unique hybrid of personal memoir, cultural criticism and art history. A reprint of the artist's seminal text, "CPLY's Reply to the Breakup at the Wasteland of Good Taste," plus photos of the artist from the family archives and installation photography of key historical exhibitions at the Alexander Iolas and Iris Clert galleries in Paris, and at the New Museum in New York City, provide further historic and conceptual background.
