NMWA Presents NO MAN’S LAND: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection

Apr 13 2016

September 30, 2016–January 8, 2017

Washington—The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) is pleased to announce that NO MAN’S LAND: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection will be on view from Sept. 30, 2016, through Jan. 8, 2017. Organized by the Rubell Family Collection (RFC), Miami, the exhibition focuses on work by contemporary artists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. RFC collaborated with NMWA to realize a new vision for the expansive exhibition, which opened at the RFC’s space in Miami in Dec. 2015. Centering on images of the female body and works that explore the physical process of making, the exhibition imagines a visual conversation between artists new to the Rubell Collection and those whose works they began collecting decades ago.

NMWA will be the first traveling venue for NO MAN’S LAND. The exhibition presents a highly focused selection of work by more than 35 women artists who are generationally, aesthetically, intellectually, and politically diverse. Born in 15 countries across five continents, the artists create paintings and sculptures with varied and often unconventional materials and in unexpected formats.

“We are excited to partner on NO MAN’S LAND with the Rubell Family Collection—one of the largest and most diverse privately held contemporary collections in the world,” said NMWA Director Susan Fisher Sterling. “In NO MAN’S LAND, large-scale paintings and sculptural hybrids reveal the expressive range of contemporary women artists and the expansive vision of the collectors who champion them.”
