For the Record: Celebrating Art by Women

Organized by the Norton, For the Record: Celebrating Art by Women looks at the breadth of contributions by women to the visual arts through the lens of the Museum’s collection. Representing a wide range of themes, this grouping emphasizes today’s working artists and as well as innovators of modernism. Some of the nearly 50 objects, including paintings, sculptures, works on paper, photography, and video, will be on view for the first time. For the Record spans multiple generations of artists from early 20th century portraits by Suzanne Valadon and Käthe Kollwitz to Agnes Martin’s nascent exploration of the geometric grid, and an expressive mixed media composition by Emma Amos as well as imposing sculptures that employ the female form by Viola Frey, Alison Saar, and Mary Sibande. Together, the exhibition and its supporting programs highlight artists’ diverse practices while offering opportunities for visitors to reflect on gender-based inclusion, exclusion, and equity in the art world and beyond.

Viola Frey (American, 1933-2004), Weeping Woman, 1990-1991
