Inspired by MoMA's fifth annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon—an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art, and feminism—this gallery session will focus on artworks by women. We’ll discuss the social and political climates in which these artists worked and experiment with some of the techniques they used to communicate their unique positions. Using works by Lee Bontecou and Gego as inspiration, we'll work with wire, experimenting with lines and playing with points of connection and tension. Looking to Geta Brătescu and Elizabeth Murray, we'll make personal collages that map our everyday lives.
This session is led by Kerry Downey.
Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.
