Mina Loy's Interior Designs

Mina Loy (1882-1966) was a modernist who defied national and disciplinary boundaries: a poet, novelist, manifesto writer, painter, fashion designer, art gallery agent, lampshade manufacturer, and inventor. She was born in London, studied in Munich, began her career in Paris and Florence, and later moved to New York and Aspen. While the early work of this fascinating figure has received scholarly attention, her work from the 1940's and 1950's, her American period, remains largely unstudied. During this time Loy lived mainly in the Bowery district of New York, where she completed a series of poems and collages that examine the life of the Bowery---its street culture, inhabitants, economy, architecture. I propose to study Mina Loy's Bowery poems and collages in the context of mid-century interior design.
