Art Newspaper interview: “Nancy Spero? still angry in her 80s”

Nancy Spero, “Maypole: Take No Prisoners”, 2007, 52th Venice Biennale

London’s The Art Newspaper recently published an interview with Season 4 artist Nancy Spero. The interview points out the important role that political, activist, and feminist activities play in Spero’s life and artwork, an artist “who has often been more acclaimed in Europe…than in her native country, where she remains almost a cult  figure.”

In this interview, Spero, who is included in the 52th Venice Biennale (June 10 – November 21, 2007) with her installation Maypole: Take No Prisoners, explains the influence of the American political situation on her current and past body of work.
