On Friday, October 25 at 9 a.m. enjoy curatorial tours of two new fall exhibitions on view at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA).
"Judy Chicago—The End: A Meditation on Death and Extinction" explores the newest body of work by feminist artist and pop-cultural icon Judy Chicago. In nearly 40 works of painted porcelain and glass, as well as two large bronze sculptures, the artist reflects on her own mortality and issues an appeal for compassion and justice for all earthly creatures.
The exhibition "Live Dangerously" features fierce, dreamy and witty images of the female figure integrated into the Earth’s terrain. Drawn primarily from NMWA’s collection of modern and contemporary photography, the exhibition features artists who make the female body their sculptural material, positioning figures in natural surroundings to suggest provocative narratives. The exhibition includes Janaina Tschäpe’s series of one hundred large-scale photographs, “100 Little Deaths” (1996–2002), exhibited in full for the first time.
