Whitney Modern Gallery – March 1, 2020 – April 30, 2020
31 Women celebrates the work of 31 female artists in honor of Women’s History Month 2020. Women’s History Month annually commemorates women’s contributions to history, culture, and society throughout the United States. 2020 is an especially exciting and powerful year for women as it is also the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote in the United States.
Highlighted individually throughout the exhibition are each artist’s process and inspiration, as well as her sense of connection to women in history and art history, distilled from dozens of interviews, correspondence and conversations. Along with the physical exhibition at Whitney Modern, the artists from 31 Women will be featured daily on social media, blogs, websites and in the gallery – one woman each day throughout the month of March. This aspect of the show is intended to be a virtual exhibition available to those outside the area and provides an individual focus on a particular artist, emphasizing her unique practice and contributions to the art community.
31 Women confirms that knowing one another empowers us. Connections past and present celebrate, support and strengthen the collective creativity of all women. Sharing our stories of women that influence us honors our past, while showcasing the work of women today crystallizes our appreciation of the present. Through such shared perspectives, we can inspire future generations of women.
