May Picks from CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts

posted by Christopher Howard — May 06, 2011

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 in North America and around the world.

The CWA Picks for May 2011 include an exhibition of new work by Uta Barth at the Art Institute of Chicago, a career-spanning survey for Loïs Mailou Jones at the Women’s Museum in Dallas, and a show at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, called Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power.

In addition, two events—a graduate-student symposium and a lecture by Gail Levin—will take place next weekend (May 14–15) at the Brooklyn Museum in New York.

Check the archive of CWA Picks at the bottom of the page, as several museum and gallery shows listed in previous months may still be on view or touring.
