Visibilities: Intrepid Women of Artpace
On view January 9 – April 26, 2020
For Artpace’s 25th anniversary year, Artpace has committed to focusing all non-residency exhibition programming to women artists in 2020. With this in mind, we will begin our 25th year with the exhibition «Visibilities: Intrepid Women of Artpace.»
A fair number of exhibitions in recent years have focused on the work of female artists, but none has focused on those coming out of Artpace’s International Artist-in-Residency program. With an eye to equity, the exhibition seeks to highlight and amplify the global voices of a bold and powerful female-identifying artistic community. As Linda Pace once said, “As an artist, I realized artists must work in environments in which they can be understood and respected. Later, as a patron, I tried to put this lesson into practice, creating a climate that encouraged individual experimentation in the way I had experienced it in that course.”
The project focuses keenly on presenting a diverse grouping of work addressing issues of identity, femininity, gender, feminism, and womanhood (in whatever form that may take) in an age when Linda Nochlin’s 1971 essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” still resonates.
Curated by Erin K. Murphy, Artpace Residency and Exhibitions Manager, Visibilities: Intrepid Women of Artpace includes a wide array of mediums brought together in an exhibition with an astounding voice. Among the featured artists are the late Laura Aguilar, Jenelle Esparza, Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Janet Flohr, Regina José Galindo, Mona Hatoum, Koo Jeong-a, Autumn Knight, Margaret Meehan, Katrina Moorhead, Wangechi Mutu, Lorraine O’Grady, Artpace founder Linda Pace, Joyce J. Scott, Wu Tsang, Martha Wilson, and Kathy Vargas.
Admission to Artpace is always free. Free parking located at 513 N Flores.
