Who Were the Modern Women Artists?

Monday, August 11, 2014, 1:30 p.m.

The Michael Ovitz Family Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 23, fourth floor

Throughout the history of Western art, prominent women artists have been singled out as exceptions, their “uniqueness” undermining their artistic achievements. In this session we will explore works by Modern women artists, who with outstanding originality nurtured, expanded, and challenged a male-dominated field.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
