women in abstraction
19 May - 23 Aug 2021
CENTRE POMPIDOU, PARIS
The exhibition sets out to write the history of the contributions of women artists to abstraction, with one hundred and six artists and more than five hundred works dating from the 1860s to the 1980s.
"Women in Abstraction" provides an opportunity to discover artists who represent discoveries both for the specialist and for the general public. It showcases the work of many of these women who suffer from a lack of visibility and recognition beyond the frontiers of their countries. Reviewing their specific contribution to the history of abstraction, the exhibition focuses on the careers of artists who were sometimes unjustly eclipsed from the history of art.
Including works by Monir Farmanfarmaian, Etel Adnan, Huguette Calland Helen al Khal and Fahrelnissa Zeid.
