This retrospective is the definitive exhibition to date of the work of Jay DeFeo (1929-89), one of the most important and innovative artists of her generation, but one who has still not been given her due. At the outset of her career in the 1950s, DeFeo was at the epicenter of the vibrant Beat community of San Francisco Bay Area artists, poets, and musicians. Although best known for The Rose (1958-66), an almost two-thousand-pound visionary masterpiece that languished behind a wall for twenty years, DeFeo created an astoundingly diverse range of works. Her unconventional approach to materials and intensive, physical process make DeFeo a unique figure in postwar American art. With more than 150 works, including collages, drawings, paintings, photographs, small sculptures, and jewelry, the exhibition, organized by curator Dana Miller, provides the first in-depth assessment of her work for a national audience, tracing DeFeo’s visual concerns and motifs across more than four decades of art-making. A major monograph published by the Whitney and distributed by Yale University Press accompanies the exhibition, which opens in November 2012 at SFMoMA before traveling to the Whitney, where it will be seen in an expanded version.
