In 2020, The New Britain Museum Of American Art Elevates Women Artists
When you got to an art gallery, how much of what you see has been made by women? Women artists are underrepresented in most museums. But this year, a special series at the New Britain Museum of American Art will exclusively feature exhibitions by female artists. This hour, we talk with the museum’s director, Min Jung Kim.
We also talk with Shantell Martin, a visual artist whose work will be featured in a solo exhibition at the New Britain Museum of American Art. And later, we hear from a member of the Guerrilla Girls, an anonymous group of women artists and activists who’ve protested disparities in museums collections.
How does the predominance of white men in the art world skew our perceptions of what’s good or valuable art?
