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

posted by Christopher Howard — Oct 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 October 2011 comprise nine exhibitions on view in the United States and Australia. Of special note are solo museum shows by the celebrated painters Charline von Heyl in Philadelphia and Dana Schutz in Purchase, New York, and a gallery exhibition of work by the sculptor Harmony Hammond. This month the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts, wraps up an exhibition, Furniture Divas, of recent functional creations by women artists and designers; and A Different Temporality examines feminism and art in Australia from 1975 to 1985.

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.
