In a new video by Art21, Nancy Spero (1926-2009) works on prints and "discusses how collaborations with other artists activated her work by allowing for greater variation. In working with others and drawing from an extensive collection of acquired and original figural images, Spero was able to produce art late into her life. Spero's piece for the Venice Biennale, “Maypole / Take No Prisoners” (2007), is shown in process"

For more context on Spero's career and her 2010 exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris can be found in Barry Schwabsky's article No Images of Man: On Nancy Spero.
