Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life

MoMA PS1 presents the first New York museum exhibition of the work of Niki de Saint Phalle

MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City

The exhibition “Structures for Life” features over 100 works of the feminist and activist American-French artist Niki de Saint Phalle. Created from the ’70s until the artist’s death in 2002, the artworks includes sculptures, prints, drawings, jewellery, and archival material.

In addressing the issues of her time, such as women’s rights, climate change and HIV awareness, Niki de Saint Phalle was often at the vanguard. The exhibition focuses on social and political issues with pieces conceived to transform environments, individuals and society. The artist has always pushed against accepted artistic practices and from the late 1960s onwards, she created large-scale sculptures leading to an expansion into architectural projects reflecting her engagement with the politics of social space, central to the exhibition.
