A mid-career survey as well as comprehensive monograph, Rachel Lachowicz presents an overview of 20 years worth of art-making.

Labeled a lipstick feminist by the art world--she once recast Yves Kleins Blue Venus in cherry-red lipstick, and frequently uses cosmetics in her work--Lachowiczs art falls under many headings: appropriationist, conceptual, feminist, postminimalist.

Her work is always visually lush and often sexually provocative- through it, she explores the crisscrossing relations between identity and the politics of mark-making. With 116 images in color, Rachel Lachowicz includes texts by Jillian Hernandez, Amelia Jones and George Melrod.
