$20,000 for the costs associated with including the painter’s work in Solitaire: Lee Lozano, Sylvia Plimack, Joan Semmel, an exhibition with accompanying catalogue and related public programs, guest-curated by Helen Molesworth. After studying art in Chicago, Lozano successfully participated in the New York art world during the 1960s before permanently leaving by the early 1970s. In addition to exploring sexually charged figurative work, Lozano created monochromatic paintings that investigated scientific phenomena as well as conceptual language-based drawings that served as instructions for performance pieces.
