Comprised almost entirely of works from the collection, this exhibition explores how women have deployed the visual language and universal formal concerns of abstraction—color, line, form, shape, contrast, pattern, and texture—to create works of art across a wide variety of media (including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, ceramics, textiles) from the 18th century to the present day.
Women and Abstraction 1741-Now will be on display at the Addison Gallery from January 28 - July 30, 2023.
Please note- the event will take place at the Addison Gallery on the campus of Phillips Academy at 3 Chapel Avenue, Andover, MA. Space is limited and registration is required.
This event is a collaboration between Memorial Hall Library and the Addison Gallery of American Art.
