Kate Millett: Fantasy Furniture, 1967
January 19, 2022 - March 5, 2022
Salon 94:
3 E 89th Street,
New York, NY 10128

Though she’s best known for her seminal feminist texts such as Sexual Politics (1970), the late Kate Millett was an active force within the ‘60s-era downtown New York art scene and worked alongside the likes of Yoko Ono and Marisol Escobar. She gained renown for a series of anthropomorphic sculptures resembling domestic furniture that were originally exhibited at The Judson Gallery in 1967 and are reuniting at Salon 94 for the first time in five decades. Each piece is meticulously hand-carved in wood, upholstered in mattress ticking, and combined with found objects to forge poetic meditations on domestic space and heteronormative social structures that often strip women of their autonomy.
