Lynda Benglis - Editions & Works on Paper New York Tuesday, April 18, 2023 | Phillips
  • “The most startling phallus in the picture is perhaps the metaphorical one that results from this fine-tuned perfection: the sense of empowerment, entitlement, aggressiveness and forthrightness so often misunderstood to be the province of men. This more than any object, penile or otherwise, is what Lynda Benglis waved at the art world.”
    —Roberta Smith, Art or Ad or What?
    It Caused a Lot of Fuss, 2009
