Biography   Mary Beth Edelson


Mary Beth Edelson has been a pioneer of the Feminist Art movement in the United States since the early 1970s. Her performances, paintings, and collages have relentlessly explored the role of women in society and challenged dominant patriarchal values.

Born in 1933 in diverse East Chicago, Indiana, Edelson had creativity and activism, which were fostered early on by her community-driven parents. In 1955, during her senior-year exhibition at DePauw University, outraged faculty members requested her work to be pulled from the show because it was deemed “degrading and an affront to ministers and small children.” Campus-wide protests ensued thus beginning a career whose hallmark would be controversy.
