Abstract

From her early collaboration with the visual poets of the Florentine Gruppo 70, to her later conceptual art that brought her to the attention of leading international feminist critics and practitioners, Italian visual poet and artist Ketty La Rocca (1938-1976) has left behind a body of work that spanned media (linear and visual poetry, collage, performance, photography, video and conceptual art) and genres. This article focuses on the hybrid nature of La Rocca’s work and her distinctive commitment to interartistic and intermedial explorations. The revaluation of her work offers a novel lens through which to rethink the work of the Italian neoavanguardia, early Italian feminist art, and the role of those artists and creative works that consciously operated outside established disciplinary boundaries.
