This year, IAC will explore the roles women have played in American art—as artists, teachers, patrons, gallerists, scholars, curators, and subjects—and focus on their too-often unrecognized contributions. Given that 2021 has seen the first female vice president take office, thereby constituting a real if unofficial “year of the woman,” it is the ideal time for such consideration. The coming year will also mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Linda Nochlin’s seminal essay, “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” and it is thus useful to consider whether or to what extent the institutional obstacles she identified as preventing western women from succeeding in the arts have been removed.

Receptions, viewings, and book signings complement formal talks and panels. 

 

Among confirmed participants are:

The Bennetts, collectors of figurative art by women of women.

Dakota Hoska, Assistant Curator, Native American Art, Denver Art Museum.

Eve Kahn, Forever Seeing New Beauties: The Forgotten Impressionist Mary Rogers Williams, 1857-1907.

Anna Marley (PAFA) "Women in Motion" and the networks of women artists working professionally in the American art world from PAFA’s founding in 1805 to the end of World War II.

Elle Shushan, author, lecturer, consultant and specialist dealer in the field of portrait miniatures who is currently serving a consultant and catalogue contributor for The Lyman Allyn Art Museum’s forthcoming “The Way Sisters: Miniaturists of the Early Republic.
