Mierle Laderman Ukeles

After child-birth in 1968, artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles became a mother/maintenance worker and fell out of the picture of the avant-garde. In a rage, she wrote the Cambridge, and the Ayalon Park in Israel. She has completed 6 work ballets with workers, trucks, barges, and hundred of tons of recyclables: in NYC, Pittsburgh, France, Holland, and Tokamachi, Japan. Recent and forthcoming exhibitions are a one person show in the Feldman Gallery Booth at the International Armory Art Fair in NYC, WACK! Art & the Feminist Revolution, at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Sharjah Biennial 8, United Arab Emirates. The unsalaried Artist In Residence in the NYC Department of Sanitation for 30 years, she is represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in NYC. Often a visiting artist, she will teach at Yale in the sculpture department in 2007—2008. She has received multiple awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the NY State Council on the Arts and support from the Guggenheim, Andy Warhol, Joan Mitchell, and Anonymous Was a Woman Foundations.

I’ve been inspired by her imaginative work on sanitation since first hearing in a book how she shook hands with all the sanitation workers in New Yourk city.  And I think the work still has resonance, a path well warn. There are AI’s who could use some of her guidance. And with it the potential to liberate us onec again from the grim, again.

yours in the struggle,
