Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life
Edited with text by Ruba Katrib. Text by Anne Dressen & Nick Mauss, Alex Kitnick, Lanka Tattersall.

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 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.

Niki de Saint Phalle
Text by Bloum Cardenas, Camille Morineau, Catherine Francblin, et al. 

This gorgeous volume offers the most complete overview in print of the oeuvre of Niki de Saint Phalle, one of the most influential and popular artists of the postwar period. The French-American artist was educated according to the social codes of upper-class New York society, but boldly rejected the expectations of her family to instead choose a career in art. Moving to Paris in the 1960s, she befriended the Nouveau Réaliste artists Martial Raysse, Daniel Spoerri and Jean Tinguely, creating her famous Shooting Paintings, the Nanas (brightly chromatic biomorphic sculptures of female archetypes), as well as experimental films, decors and costumes for ballet productions and collaborations with Tinguely, Robert Rauschenberg and others. Saint Phalle was adept at using the media to consolidate her public image, and soon became an icon of the 1960s art scene, attaining a broad cultural profile that was furthered by her numerous public art projects, including the Tarot Garden in Tuscany and the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris. This superbly produced publication—which features a die-cut cover through which Saint Phalle peers, aiming her gun—presents her works in all media, along with ephemera and archival photographs documenting her rich career and life.
