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

posted by Christopher Howard — Mar 07, 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 March 2013 are composed of three important exhibitions on the East Coast of the United States. Organized by Dena Muller, Jay Defeo: A Retrospective will be on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York through June 2, after its celebrated first presentation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in California in 2012–13. Also in New York, the Bronx Museum of the Arts is presenting paintings created since 2001 by Joan Semmel. Finally, Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and University of the Arts in Philadelphia are hosting Lenore Tawney: Wholly Unlooked For, a multivenue exhibition of work by this pioneering fiber artist.

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.
