About the work: Chairs for Nancy Spero and Lucy Lippard With Simple Readers was an honest attempt to summon the spirit of these powerful and potent feminiss into the room with me. I made the chairs as a pair in a formal gesture to bring the two of them together in conversation around the table. The work functions as memorial and scholarship as a way to encourage those who see the work to learn more about these two important American women.
