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.
Leading off the CWA Picks for November 2011 are two concurrent but unique exhibitions—at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Connecticut and the Leubsdorf Gallery at Hunter College in New York—by the artist, poet, and performer Patti Smith, known for her 1975 album Horses and her collaborations and friendship with the late Robert Mapplethorpe. Next, the committee highlights the second annual Feminist Art History Conference, taking place November 4–6 at American University in Washington, DC. Papers will cover a wide range of topics in art history, from medieval times to the present. Surveys of work by Francesca Woodman and Sherri Levine round out the November selections.
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.
