The three-part exhibition Women Artists in the KMA Collection will highlight paintings, prints, and 3-D work made by women artists in the 20th century. Part I will explore the work of women artists who began their career prior to the feminist movement in art in the 1970s. The work included in Part I is for the most part abstract and in the form of paintings, drawings and prints. This exhibition will place these artists within the larger art world context in which they worked, exploring the relationship between gender, art making, and abstraction.
