ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

2020/20 Women @ NBMAA Celebrating the Impact of Female-Identifying Artists throughout American History

The New Britain Museum of American Art will present 202020 Women @ NBMAA, a year-long series of seven groundbreaking exhibitions devoted exclusively to women artists beginning January 2020. 100 years after women gained the right to vote, only 27% of major exhibitions are devoted to women artists worldwide. Challenging underrepresentation and celebrating diversity, artists featured will include Kara Walker, Anni Albers, Shantell Martin, Yoko Ono, Nancy Spero, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Carrie Mae Weems, Jennifer Wen Ma, and more.
