Women Painting, at MDC Museum of Art and Design
Summer hours: Wednesday & Saturday, 11am-5pm
At Miami Dade College Kendall Gallery, Girls’ Club presents Women Painting, an exhibition of the contributions of women to the field of contemporary painting. The exhibition takes inspiration from the historic documentary film Painters Painting (1973) which chronicled the New York School Painters from 1940-1970. Lauded as the definitive documentary of the New York Art Scene, the film includes one lone female painter among the many, following suit with a historic gender bias in the industry that habitually excluded women from recognition and historic documentation. Girls’ Club will, in essence, do the opposite. An exhibition, film series and public program to be presented on campus and other sites.
Curated by Michelle Weinberg and Sarah Michelle Rupert, Women Painting features 52 works from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz.
Artists include Harumi Abe, Dhruvi Acharya, Firelei Baez, Ingrid Calame, Squeak Carnwath, Elisabeth Condon, Amy Cutler, Melanie Daniel, Julie Davidow, Madeline Denaro, Nicole Doran, Nicole Eisenman, Louise Fishman, Pia Fries, Jackie Gendel, Neysa Grassi, Joanne Greenbaum, Hilary Harnischfeger, Sharon Horvath, Jacqueline Humphries, Vera Iliatova, Chantal Joffe, Emily Noelle Lambert, Natalya Laskis, Amy Mahnick, Melissa Meyer, Beatriz Monteavaro, Elizabeth Murray, Kathy Osborn, Julia Oschatz, Vickie Pierre, Vanessa Prager, Cristina Quarles, Julie Rofman, Lisa Sanditz, Amy Sillman, Elena Sisto, Shinique Smith, Joan Snyder, Nicola Tyson, Josette Urso, Odalis Valdivieso, Lara Viana, Shoshanna Weinberger, Sue Williams, Paula Wilson, Katharina Wulff and Lisa Yuskavage.
This event is free and open to the public.
