“Women of Abstract Expressionism”
June 12 – September 25, 2016
Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado

 

Too often, female artists are overlooked in art history, frequently overshadowed by their male counterparts. This show goes a long way to remedy some of this oversight. Women of Abstract Expressionism is the first Exhibition to present, at the same time, twelve of these remarkable female Abstract Expressionist artists. Over fifty major works are included — the artists: Mary Abbott, Jay DeFeo, Perle Fine, Helen Frankenthaler, Sonia Gechtoff, Judith Godwin, Grace Hartigan, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Deborah Remington, and Ethel Schwabacher. All of these artists worked during the 1940s-50s, on both the East and West Coasts, and produced some of the most exciting Abstract Expressionist works ever created.

Following the Denver Art Museum, the exhibition will travel to the Mint Museum, Charlotte, in October 2016 and the Palm Springs Art Museum in February 2017.
