Event Description

What a Woman Can Do

Join NMWA staff and special guests who consider topics relevant to our mission to champion women artists. In this episode, curators Andaleeb Badiee Banta and Alexa Greist join NMWA hosts to discuss their upcoming exhibition What a Woman Can Do, planned for 2023–24 at the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Art Gallery of Ontario. The exhibition, which includes paintings and silver works from NMWA’s collection, aims to present a feminist revision of early modern European art history (ca. 1400–1800) and will broaden viewers’ understanding of women’s diverse contributions to European visual culture.
