A new exploration of Niki de Saint Phalle's colorful and compelling public structures, with archival materials and more

This volume brings newfound attention to Niki de Saint Phalle's (1930-2002) work in architecture and public sculpture, and the commercial products such as perfume and jewelry that she produced to fund these ambitious projects.

Featuring a wide selection of images of her architectural works and rarely seen archival materials, this book places these projects within the context of her larger boundary-defying practice, drawing connections with politically charged works such as the films and books she made in response to the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.

Charting Saint Phalle's many efforts to radically open her practice beyond the confines of the art world, it serves as a survey of her practice from the 1960s until the early 2000s. Edited and with an essay by exhibition curator Ruba Katrib, the publication features new scholarship by Anne Dressen and Nick Mauss, Alex Kitnick, and Lanka Tattersall.
