American conceptual artist Elaine Reichek (born 1943) studied under Ad Reinhardt at Yale University. Her work deals with issues of national and cultural identity, informed by feminist theory and practice. Employing traditionally female practices such as knitting and embroidery, Reichek recreates familiar historical images and political icons in order to challenge notions of knowledge and culture. Reichek has exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe, including a solo exhibition at IMMA in 1993.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, in line with current government restrictions, IMMA’s galleries will close from 24 December until further notice. All tickets purchased for Paula Rego, Obedience and Defiance exhibition will be refunded over the next two weeks. We appreciate your patience during this time.
