Judith Bernstein

About The Author

Since her MFA from Yale in 1967, Judith Bernstein has developed a reputation as one of the most unwaveringly provocative artists of her generation. For over 50 years, her work has been an autobiographical exploration of the connection between the political and the sexual. Steadfast in her cultural, political and social critique throughout her career, Bernstein surged into art world prominence in the early 1970s with her monumental anti-war and Feminist charcoal drawings of anthropomorphic phallic screws. In 2016 she received a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her work is included in collections internationally.
