Product Details

Praise

“This 256-page catalogue of her feminist output- from washing the sidewalks in front of a gallery in 1974 to becoming the first artist-in-residence at the City of New York Department of Sanitation (DSNY) in 1977, to several more decades of dealing with trash –features insightful essays by Larissa Harris, Lucy R. Lippard, and Patricia C. Phillips. But what makes the volume sparkle are Tom Finkelpearl’s interviews with four DSNY commissioners who worked with Ukeles, which together provide a minihistory of the city.”

-Bookforum
“Ms. Phillips’s extensive catalog essay is an invaluable addition: Facts, style, wisdom, they’re all there.”

—The New York Times
“As the New York City Department of Sanitation’s official artist-in-residence, Mierle Laderman Ukeles has challenged perceptions of labor and the city’s workers for over 30 years . . . In subversive performances, unusual installations, and mixed-media works (like trash-dump sculptures), Ukeles often explores cultural status and female identity.”

—New York Magazine, The Cut
