Description - Mary Kelly by Douglas Crimp

This text argues that Mary Kelly's combination of texts with images and found objects has been pivotal, not only to the development of Conceptual Art, but also to 20th-century feminism. Kelly often deploys prevailing literary or scientific genres, ranging from romantic fiction to types of psychoanalytical and medical diagnosis which define women as "other", and overturns them with her own narratives and images. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist's work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.
