Event Description

About the Event

Since 2020, our world has been transformed by a global pandemic, advocacy for social reform, and political division. How have these extraordinary times inspired artists? Works by the 28 artists featured in New Worlds: Women to Watch 2024 explore these ideas from perspectives that shift across geographies, cultural viewpoints, and time.

Once a month, leading up to and through the opening of the exhibition in April 2024, NMWA curators host a special members-only virtual event with a group of participating artists to discuss one of the themes of the exhibition. In November’s panel discussion, artists Graciela Arias (representing Peru), Saskia Jordá (Arizona), Alexis McGrigg (Mississippi), Arely Morales (Texas), and Aimée Papazian (Arkansas) reveal the ways in which their work reflects themes of migration, displacement, and world-building.
