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 December 2012–January 2013 include several important exhibitions in the United States, England, and Sweden. In New York, Lehman Maupin Gallery is hosting a two-part presentation of new work by Mickalene Thomas, whose traveling survey at the Brooklyn Museum was a November pick. Other events in the city include a temporary performance and installation work by Ann Hamilton at the Park Avenue Armory and sculpture, painting, and drawing by Caroline Burton at Accola Griefen Gallery.
Midcareer retrospectives are trending: the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh is offering a look at painting by Deborah Kass in relation to the Pope of Pop, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York is showcasing Rosemarie Trockel’s mixed-media work. Across the Atlantic, Kate Davis has produced work in dialogue with Jo Spence at Drawing Room in London, and Tensta Konsthall in Stockholm is highlighting the full painting and film career of Marie-Louise Ekman.
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.
