“Women Breaking Boundaries” celebrates past and present female artists

In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, the Cincinnati Art Museum will showcase Women Breaking Boundaries from October 11–April 12, 2020. The exhibit highlights artworks from the museum’s permanent collection created by female artists from the seventeenth century to today.

Thirty-eight artworks will be on display from Europe, North America, and Asia, and will range from paintings and ceramics to photography and fashion.

“Though Women Breaking Boundaries proudly recognizes the contributions of female artists to the art canon, this is not a celebration of equality,” says Ainsley M. Cameron, curator of South Asian Art, Islamic Art and Antiquities. “Artists who identify as female continue to be a minority within museum collections — ours, and in the art world more broadly speaking — and addressing this inequality creates space for dialogue and productive exchange.”
