November Picks from the Committee on Women in the Arts

posted by Christopher Howard — Nov 10, 2010

Each month, CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts produces a curated list, called CWA Picks, of recommended exhibitions and events related to feminist art and scholarship from North America and around the world.

Two CWA Picks for November 2010 focus on conference sessions and a symposium taking place this week. At the National Women’s Studies Association Conference, which starts today in Denver, two Friday sessions explore art and film by women since the 1970s. On Saturday, the American Folk Art Museum in New York is hosting a daylong event broadly examining the role of women in culture from antiquity to the present.

CWA Picks also include four exhibitions. Sally Mann is showing new photographs at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and Lynda Benglis’s touring show stops at the Rhode Island School of Design. Two institutions in Connecticut are presenting historical presentations of needlework and embroidery.

Check out past CWA Picks archived at the bottom of the page, as exhibitions highlighted in previous months are often still on view.
