This reinstallation of the Level 3 galleries (on view 13 September 2019–3 May 2021) challenges the dominant history of American art by focusing on the overlooked and underrepresented work and stories of women artists.
The central space of Gallery 332 features images of women, created by women. The objects range across time and place, as well as social, political, and cultural contexts, to represent the diversity of approaches women have taken in depicting one another. Highlights include such celebrated paintings as Frida Kahlo’s Dos Mujeres (Salvadora y Herminia) and Alice Neel’s Linda Nochlin and Daisy.
