Her Story by Elizabeth Murray and Anne Waldman

Now through 11/4/2018 | Henry Art Gallery

Museums University District

This iteration of Viewpoints features Her Story, 1988–1990, a collaborative work by Elizabeth Murray (U.S., 1940–2007) and Anne Waldman (U.S., born 1945) that involved a back and forth exchange of drawings, prints, and drafts of poems over several years. Housed in a green folio box, the series consists of thirteen folded sheets with a poem by Waldman on the left and a print by Murray on the right, the artists’ signatures watermarked on each page. Together, the prints and poems of Her Story reciprocally inform each other, probing questions of interiority and exteriority, public and private being, freedom and entrapment, and the complexity and (im)possibility of embodying the feminine.
