January Picks from CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts
posted by Christopher Howard — Jan 11, 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 January 2012 include five solo shows of women artists at museums and galleries across the United States. The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida, presents Jenny Saville, and the Tufts University Art Gallery in Medford, Massachusetts, will exhibit the work of Nancy Holt. Cathy Wilkes is on view at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery of New Jersey City University in Jersey City has organized a survey of Margaret Murphy’s work. Last, Zoe Strauss receives a midcareer retrospective at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Pennsylvania.
In California, the performance artists Andrea Fraser and Vaginal Davis will stage one-day events for Pacific Standard Time’s Performance and Public Art Festival, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is presenting an exhibition of work created between 1931 and 1968 by female Surrealist artists living in the United States and Mexico.
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.
