About the Class

In 1971, art historian Linda Nochlin’s classic essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” reminded readers that women artists throughout history—and indeed women in general—have had to fight for a seat at the table. Today, women around the globe continue to persevere. This one-day workshop highlights key contributions by women in art since 1900, from Georgia O’Keeffe to Marina Abramović, Pat Steir, and other trailblazers from our own time.

Capacity: 75
