So Help Me Hannah, Snatch-Shots with Ray Guns, 1978

Description


The Feldman Gallery will present video/film performances by Hannah Wilke from 1976-85 including So Help Me Hannah (1978) and Through the Large Glass (1976). The exhibition will also include photographs and other wall works related to these performances.

Hannah Wilke has played a seminal and innovative role in the history of performance art and remains an important influence on contemporary art today. Throughout her career, and even before it formally started in the early l960s, Hannah Wilke periodically created work -- drawings, photographs, live appearances, videotapes, audiotapes, film, advertisements -- that involved her own performance. They began with photographs in childhood and adolescence and continued through the videos and photos that recorded her final illness with lymphoma.
