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

posted by Christopher Howard — Jun 06, 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 June 2013 comprise seven solo exhibitions, most of them bringing together work spanning an artist’s career. In Manhattan, PPOW Gallery is presenting examples from several series by the pioneering feminist artist Carolee Schneemann, and Broadway 1602 has gathered several historical installations by Nicola L, an underrecognized French artist based in New York. Work made by Nicole Eisenman since 2009 is on view at the Berkeley Art Museum in California, and Eve Sussman is the subject of a survey at the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, Florida. In Europe, Ellen Gallagher is having a midcareer retrospective at Tate Modern in London, VALIE EXPORT is showing work related to touch (i.e., physical contact) in Berlin, and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm is focusing on Niki de Saint Phalle’s interest in the girl, the monster, and the goddess.

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.
