Manon

A cross between Cindy Sherman and Hannah Wilke (with a touch of Marlene Dietrich), Swiss performance artist Manon has been giving European audiences her coolly sexual impersonations and distinct body art for 30 years. This survey of her work—the first in the U.S.—features, among photographic projects, two installations from the 1970s: The Lox-Colored Boudoir, a replica of Manon's bedroom, sumptuously outfitted for lovin'; and the set from a performance that had the artist living inside a cage as a chained dominatrix.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m. Starts: April 29. Continues through June 20, 2009
