This combined survey will illuminate how historical and ideological structures have influenced the interpretation and institutional validation of women’s artistic practices. “Histories of Women” will bring together some sixty pieces made during the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, with a special emphasis on lesser-known Latin American painters such as Maria Emília Campos (Brazil) and Magdalena Mira Mena (Chile). The second section, “Feminist Histories,” will include approximately one hundred works by artists who emerged in the twenty-first century. When seen in tandem, the shows will elucidate how these women have defined, responded to, and advanced feminism and equality over time.
