Artstor has collaborated with Rebecca Hackemann to release more than 200 images of her artwork in the Digital Library. The images in the Digital Library include both digital reproductions of two-dimensional works and documentation of her public sculptures and installations. Hackemann’s conceptually-oriented art challenges existing media categories and is primarily concerned with issues of perception, representation, and the intersection between language and image, as well as with the history of public space and urban planning in non-traditional locations.

ARTstor Digital Library and the Mattress Factory have reached an agreement to share 12,000 images documenting installations exhibited at the museum since its opening in 1977.
The Mattress Factory is a museum of contemporary art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that specializes in installations created on site by artists from all over the world. The museum’s unusual galleries are located in two creatively reused buildings on the city’s historic North Side. Both buildings house a growing permanent collection, featuring works by James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, Winifred Lutz, and Rolf Julius, as well as periodical exhibitions.
March is Women’s History Month, the perfect time to highlight the work of Karen Finley, a world-renowned performance artist, author, and playwright whose work has addressed issues such as sexuality, abuse, and American politics from an uncompromising feminist perspective.
Finley came to national attention when her 1990 grant application to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) was vetoed, along those of three other artists, because the content of her work was considered inappropriate. The artists sued and ultimately lost a Supreme Court appeal, but Finley was not deterred. As her struggles with the NEA were already in full swing in 1990, Franklin Furnace—in a bold move, as the organization itself was partly funded by the NEA—presented her installation, A Woman’s Life Isn’t Worth Much.
ARTstor and the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University are now sharing more than 250 images of nonconformist art from the Soviet Union in the Digital Library. The collection, the largest of its kind in the world, includes more than 20,000 works of art by close to 1,000 artists and documents the creative activities of underground artists in the Soviet Union who courageously broke away from Socialist Realism—the official artistic style of the communist regime. With works in all media, the collection spans the late 1950s to late 1980s—from the initiation of the underground movement during Khruschev’s cultural thaw to Gorbachev’s perestroika and the downfall of the Soviet Union.

Celebrated French Impressionist Edgar Degas was born on July 19, 1834. Widely known for his painting, he only exhibited one sculpture during his lifetime: The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer was shown in the sixth Impressionist exhibition in Paris in 1881. Upon Degas’ death in 1917, more than 150 pieces of sculpture of dancers, horses, and nudes, mostly made of wax, clay, and plastiline (a type of modeling clay), were discovered in his studio (read the intriguing story of the posthumous castings on the Metropolitan Museum of Art website).
