Women Painting, exhibition at MDC Museum of Art and Design

At Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art And Design, Girls’ Club will present Women Painting, an exhibition of the contributions of women to the field of contemporary painting, curated by Michelle Weinberg and Sarah Michelle Rupert. 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.

This event is free and open to the public.

at MDC Kendall Gallery, 11011 SW 104th Street, Miami, FL
