A prolific writer and documenter of both her art and her relationships, the public and private, Lee Lozano (1930-99) kept a series of personal journals from 1968 to 1972 while living in New York’s SoHo neighbourhood. Eleven of these private books survive. The notebooks contain notes on her work, detailed interactions with artist friends and commentary on the alienations of gender politics, as well as philosophical queries into art's role in society and humorous asides from daily life. In the decade before her infamous "dropout piece" — culminating in a move to Dallas where she would remain until her death — Lozano returned to these notebooks, editing the entries, sometimes blacking out entire pages.
