American artist Molly Zuckerman-Hartung (born 1975) uses collage, fabric, paint and references to pop culture, literature and feminist theory to create lively works somewhere between painting and assemblage. This volume presents Zuckerman-Hartung’s work and personal journeys from the past 18 years, from her involvement in the underground feminist punk scene and Riot Grrrl to her work as a painter and creator of layered, multimedia objects. Drawing prominently from aesthetic trends associated with Riot Grrrl zines and vintage feminist theory texts, this richly illustrated book explores the iconoclastic nature of the artist’s brash and colorful works across mediums. Comic Relief documents the art historical intersections within Zuckerman-Hartung’s practice, the enduring cultural implications of radical feminism, the aesthetic history of the Riot Grrrl movement and broader questions about the current landscape of contemporary art, queer aesthetics and abstract painting. This publication accompanies the artist’s first museum survey at the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston and features major new texts and an interview that elucidate the artist’s singular vision.
