NO MAN’S LAND

NO MAN’S LAND: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection is a provocative survey of contemporary art by women from one of the largest and most diverse collections in the U.S.—the Rubell Family Collection.

Celebrated artists featured will include Cecily Brown, Marlene Dumas, Isa Genzken, Yayoi Kusama, Wangechi Mutu, Elizabeth Peyton, Dana Schutz, Mickalene Thomas, and Rosemarie Trockel.

Born in 16 countries across five continents, the 37 artists use their aesthetically diverse work to address a variety of political and intellectual themes. The exhibition in Washington, D.C., explores the process of making and images of the female body.
