“It would be kind of good,” Kruger recently said about the lasting relevance of her art, “if my work became archaic.”
It was in this context that Barbara Kruger created "Untitled (Your body is a battleground)," which was produced for the March for Women’s Lives in Washington, DC, in support of legal abortions, birth control, and women’s rights.
Almost three decades after Kienholz created The Illegal Operation, abortion had long been legalized in the United States, but in the late 1980s a new wave of anti-abortion laws had begun to undermine Roe v. Wade, leading to a resurgence of protests and demonstrations.
The gritty tableaux, which draws from the experience of Kienholz's then wife’s own “illegal operation,” depicts a makeshift operating room. There is no body in this scene, only a ripped sack of cement, its contents spilling onto a chair through an oozing gash.
Edward Kienholz’s "The Illegal Operation" was created in 1962, a decade before the 1973 decision which legalized abortion in the United States.
Two works currently on view at LACMA—one by Edward Kienholz, made before Roe v. Wade, the other by Barbara Kruger, made several decades after—both remain relevant as ever.
It has also emphasized the power of art to channel the outrage and anxiety in the ongoing battle over abortion and women’s right to choose.
Last week’s news of the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft opinion that threatens to overturn Roe v. Wade urged many of the country’s artists and activists to take to the streets in protest.

Read more about this incredible new acquisition: unframed.lacma.org/2022/04/27/new…
Now a part of LACMA's collection, this incredible gown will be featured in LACMA's upcoming major exhibition "Fashioning Fashion, 1900–2022."
Finished with over 12,000 hand-applied Swarovski jet and jet-hematite crystals, the embellished gown sparkled as it expanded, contracted, and swayed like silk when sensually animated by Von Teese at the grand finale of a 2013 technology symposium during New York Fashion Week.
The gown's design is inspired the golden ratio mathematical theory developed by the 13th-century Italian mathematician Fibonacci, which explains many recurring patterns in nature, and is believed to quantify ideal proportions of beauty.
New acquisition spotlight ✨ Michael Schmidt's “Articulated 3-D Digitally Printed Gown” is the world’s first articulated 3-D digitally printed gown, designed exclusively for his friend and muse Dita Von Teese, a burlesque star and model.
We are so excited to announce the acquisition of nine new artworks for LACMA's permanent collection. Get a sneak peek at the incredible range of new works, and stay tuned for a deep dive into these pieces: bit.ly/3ONvMOt
