Vanessa Beecroft (born April 25, 1969 in Genoa, Italy) is an Italian contemporary artist living in Los Angeles, whose daring performance art addresses both conceptual and aesthetic concerns. Her performance art is often large scale, with many live female models, often nude. At her performances, video recordings and photographs are made, to be exhibited as documentation of the performances and also as separate works of art. Beecroft's work provokes questions about identity politics, sexuality, beauty and voyeurism in the complex relationship between viewer, model and context.
Vanessa Beecroft's performance art is documented in these new and used books:
