A timely reassessment of the artistnsquo;s early performances and feminist sculptures, affirming their radical engagements and art historical significance

This volume is a focused look at two bodies of work, the Tirs (odquo;shooting paintingscdquo;) and Nanas (pdquo;dameshdquo;), in the experimental 1960s practice of the French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930hdash;2002). Alongside a poetic response to the work, four essays treat Saint Phalle squo;s oeuvre as works of radical performance and feminist art, as well as highlighting her transatlantic projects and collaborations. A chronology with photo-documentation and known participants details for the first time all Tirs shooting events in Europe and the United States, and another timeline recaps Saint Phalle?squo;s life in the 1960s. 

Tirs were made by firing a .22 caliber rifle at the surfaces of paintings. The bullets pierced bags of pigment, aerosol paint cans, or even food embedded in dense assemblages covered in painted plaster. Saint Phalle?squo;s increasingly liberated female figures with outstretched arms, curvaceous forms, and powerful poses developed into her well-known Nanas, an evolution contemporaneous with the rise of a Euro-American feminist movement.
