Hopefully, you’ve heard about the upcoming exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, Women of Abstract Expressionism, curated by Gwen Chanzit running June 12th-September 25th. I think this will be an interesting fleshing-out of the history that put New York City at the center of the global Art World map.
A show that responds to that one will take place from July 15-October 1 at the Center for Visual Arts, Metropolitan State University. Less than two miles from the DAM.
From their press release at Center for Visual Art- Metropolitan State University of Denver:
“…this exhibition is presented at a time when the art community worldwide is examining the role of women in contemporary art and questioning the uneven representation of women in major exhibitions, publications, and sales. Guest curator Michael Paglia (art critic for Denver Westword and art ltd. magazine, and author of books Colorado Abstract and Texas Abstract) has brought together some of the most important women abstractionists…”
I’m very pleased to be included in the exhibition along with many talented contemporary artists working today. Hope to see you there!
