. Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth to Mount Epic Exhibition of ‘Women Painting Women’ « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NEWS – The 50th anniversary of “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” last year prompted Andrea Karnes, chief curator of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Texas, to revisit Nochlin’s essay. In her forthcoming show “Women Painting Women,” Karnes aims to make clear that nothing—and everything—has changed. “Alice Neel started painting the figure in the late 1920s, and no one was paying attention for a long time. The same for Faith Ringgold and Emma Amos,” Karnes said. Until recently, those artists were considered important to many but had generally hovered just outside the canon of mainstream U.S. institutions.
