Some of the artists prominent in the movement during this period include Emma Amos, Judy Chicago, the Guerrilla Girls, Jenny Holzer, Ana Mendieta, Lorraine O’Grady, Howardena Pindell, Faith Ringgold, Miriam Schapiro and Martha Wilson, among others. Organized by Linda Muehlig, associate director for curatorial affairs and curator of painting and sculpture, and drawn from the museum’s holdings, Women’s Work highlighted a number of recent acquisitions on view for the first time. During feminism’s formative decades, feminist art practice and ideologies took many forms and addressed many issues involving both the personal and public spheres. The exhibition was organized around five themes selected from the complex history of the Second Wave: marginalization of women artists and their exclusion from the art historical canon; the female body and its representation; sexuality and gender; race and ethnicity; and “women’s work.” Women’s Work: Feminist Art from the Collection was funded in part by the Judith Plesser Targan, class of 1953, Art Museum Fund, and by the Carlyn Steiner ’67 and George Steiner Endowed Fund, in honor of Joan Smith Koch. Programs relating to the exhibition focused on student and public engagement with living artists including Martha Wilson and the Guerrilla Girls. Charlene Shang Miller was the lead educator for Women’s Work. She worked closely to plan and implement programs with Emma Cantrell, Gina Hall, Maggie Newey, Louise Martindell ‘02 and Kate Scrimshaw-Hall ‘16.
