Over the past four decades, pioneering artist Martha Wilson has created conceptual performance, photography, and video works that explore her female subjectivity and sensitivity to surveillance. Wilson was a founding member of the all-girl, conceptual feminist punk rock group DISBAND, and she has widely performed her signature impersonations of high-profile political figures since the early 80s—Alexander Haig, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, and Tipper Gore. In 1976 Wilson founded (and has since directed) Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc, the stalwart institution that presents and preserves artists’ books, temporary installations, and performance art. During the last 30 years, Franklin Furnace has presented nearly 2000 events and Wilson has developed exhibitions, publications, courses and pedagogical resources concerning the artistic movement and philosophy we now know as Postmodernism.
