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

posted by Christopher Howard — Mar 23, 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 Americn and around the world.

The CWA Picks for March 2012 go international with solo exhibitions of work by Rosemarie Trockel in Belgium, Eija-Liisa Ahtila in Sweden, and Kimsooja in France. In the United States, the Museum of Modern Art in New York is hosting a career survey of photographs by Cindy Sherman, arguably one of the most influential artists of the past fifty years. Close at her heels are the Guerrilla Girls, who have taken over two galleries at Columbia College Chicago for their own retrospective, which comprises their important works of art and activism since the 1980s. Rounding out the March picks are a special collaboration between the British artist Rachel Kneebone and the French sculptor Auguste Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum and the graphic production of Sister Mary Corita at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC.

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.
