This series of small early works on paper, completed during mid 1960s, reveals the classical beginnings of Lynn Hershman’s career, as well as hints of themes such as identity, gender, self-representation, artificial body, and doubling that run through her diverse body of works over the years. Based in the Bay Area at the time, Hershman was immersed in the context of technology and transitional times, where her many experiments with sculpture and new media extended out of her practice of drawing.
