Louise Lawler Bio

About The Artist

Louise Lawler's photographs focus on the presentation and marketing of artwork. Photographing the work of artists in collectors' homes, in galleries, on the walls of auction houses, and in museum storage, Lawler is also known for her installation pieces and experimental works. Birdcalls, from the 1970s, is an audio artwork that transforms the names of famous male artists into a sound poem, parroting names such as Richard Artschwager, Dan Graham, and Lawrence Weiner—a mockery of the conditions of privilege and recognition given to male artists at that time.
