This exhibition catalogue essay examines the reception in the United States of the work of French dissident surrealist Antonin Artaud, and its impact on visual art practice during the post-war period. I argue that artists including Wallace Berman, Bruce Conner, and Nancy Spero identified in Artaud a model for dismantling the structures of authority via the linguistic, material, and corporeal mode of delirium.
