Exhibition poster with the work, Picasso and Frederick's of Hollywood (1990), by Nancy Spero (1926-2009), published in connection with the exhibition at Louisiana in 2020. The American artist and activist, Nancy Spero, was a feminist pioneer and known for her artistic showdown with 1960' the rulers of every kind.

Nancy Spero's work takes an active stance on injustice—whether it is about war or the oppression of women.

Already early in his career, Spero abandoned painting. She considered it a symbol of a male-dominated world order and instead primarily used paper, which as a material has a more fragile expression—less macho, less pompous.

Among Spero's most important motifs is the human body, especially the female body. In order to be able to express what she perceived as the basic nature of man, in the 1970s Spero also removed men completely from her art, just as in the same period she co-founded the gallery AIR, which exclusively shows female artists.

Nancy Spero's works are part of the Louisiana Collection.
