“Momentum” - Contemporary Women’s Art

Commemorating 40 years of the Women’s Caucus for Art, "Momentum" presents the art and ideas of intergenerational contemporary women artists. Moving forward and yet still in touch with our roots; the exhibition celebrates what has influenced the artists looking back over the past 40 years of women in the arts, reflecting on struggles and accomplishments and how this inspires their momentum, moving ahead.

Presented by Avenue 50 Studio, "by and for: democracy and art," is a visual conversation of the role of art in a democracy. Thirty were selected by curator, activist and art historian Carol A. Wells, the founder and executive director of the Center for Study of Political Graphics.

In the work exhibited, the artists address shifting meanings of freedom and equality, censorship and civil liberties. Using art as a vehicle for the discussion of political issues has a rich history which, at times, has been shrouded in censorship.
