Modern and contemporary women artists with works on view at NMWA employ self-portraiture to address personal, social, and political issues.
A photograph shows the nude artist sitting in a metal grocery cart. It is located on a paved road in a flat, empty landscape under a gray, misty sky. Her back to the viewer, the light-skinned, brunette woman holds her raised arms in a wide V-shape, suggesting joy or abandon.
