October 2013 Picks from CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts

posted by Christopher Howard — Sep 27, 2013

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 2013 consist of several excellent exhibitions of women artists in the United States: Chiharu Shiota at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, Eleanor Antin at Columbia University in New York, and Nalini Malani at Galerie Lelong in New York. Also included are two important group shows: She Who Tells a Story, an exhibition of female photographers from the Arab world at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and The Beginning Is Always Today, the first major museum survey of Scandinavian feminist art in twenty years.

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.
