November 2012 Picks from CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts

posted by Christopher Howard — Nov 09, 2012

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 November 2012 include several important exhibitions in New York, New Jersey, and Nebraska, and in Germany. The first is Creeping Ornamentalism, a prescient, timely installation by Susan Hamburger that focuses on the destruction caused by Hurricane Irene in 2011 in New Jersey, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

In New York, the Brooklyn Museum boasts two stellar shows, Materializing “Six Years”: Lucy R. Lippard and the Emergence of Conceptual Art and Mickalene Thomas: Origin of the Universe, and two commercial galleries are showing the work of Sandra Ramos and Penny Slinger. Out west, the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha is showing prints by numerous women artists in Under Pressure. Across the Atlantic, Kunstverein Hamburg presents Kiki Kogelnik: I Have Seen the Future.

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.
