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 December 2011 is an exhibition at the Gibbes Museum of Art in South Carolina covering three hundred years of work by women artists such as Henrietta de Beaulieu Dering Johnston, who is considered the first female professional artist in America. Three solo shows in New York are also worth checking out: new photographs by Nan Goldin, sculptural installations from Sarah Sze, and a Sanja Iverković survey.
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.
