About this Event
1250 New York Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20005
Join the Corcoran School for the reopening celebration of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) museum and the exhibition "Holding Ground: Artists’ Books for the National Museum of Women in the Arts." The exhibition will run Tuesday – Sunday, Oct 21, 2023 - Oct 20, 2024.
As described on the NMWA website, "Alisa Banks, Adjoa J. Burrowes, Julie Chen, Suzanne Coley, IBé Crawley, Maricarmen Solis Diaz, Colette Fu, Kerry McAleer-Keeler, and Maria Veronica San Martin reflect on spaces that foster women’s creative expression. Many of the works consider NMWA as a special and evolving place for art by women, now and into the future. Others remind viewers that creativity is expressed and uplifted in unexpected spaces, from small interiors such as Harlem kitchens to vast outdoor geographies such as Chile’s Atacama Desert. Above all, the artists’ books celebrate the spaces where women’s creativity blooms."
Boiling Points Book Description:
"Why haven't there been more women artists in the art history books? Why weren’t there more women artists of color being heard historically in art? And, why have women been marginalized, ignored, or just erased from the canon of art? My artist's book Boiling Points seeks to acknowledge these issues and recognizes why the National Museum of Women In the Arts is such a significant landmark that addresses these questions head on by highlighting the gender imbalance that still exists today in the art world."
