Phyllis Krim Collection

Showing 20 of 102 records

The Phyllis Krim capsule collection includes artifacts, photographs, and ephemera culled from the artist’s decades-long career as a painter active in the bohemian circles of downtown NYC in the 1960s and 70s. Known for her use of classic cars and motorcycles as motifs, Krim penned feminist texts and was critical of the concept of “women’s imagery.” A close friend of Louise Bourgeois, Phyllis exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum and in the seminal show “10 Downtown/10 Years” at MoMA PS1 and 112 Workshop. Printed matter from these and other exhibitions, as well as newly discovered audio recordings and a documentary produced in 1975 for Manhattan Cable TV, are also featured in the collection, tracing the artist’s contributions to feminist culture across varied media.
