From April 19 through June 22, to mark the release of Codex Spero. Nancy Spero Selected Writings and Interviews 1950-2008 compiled by curator Roel Arkesteijn, de Appel in Amsterdam is hosting a solo exhibition by the Season 4 artist.
At once an ‘artistic testament’ and ‘radical manifest,’ the monograph contains a selection of the artist’s texts, personal statements, notes and interviews. The exhibition Spero Speaks includes exemplary works from different phases of Nancy Spero’s distinguished career as artist, activist, feminist and mentor.
Codex Spero. Nancy Spero Selected Writings and Interviews 1950-2008 is published by de Appel in collaboration with Roma Publications. Since 1975, de Appel has functioned as a site for the research and presentation of contemporary visual art through exhibitions, publications and discursive events. De Appel also functions as a platform for performances by visual artists, choreographers and theatre makers.
