Hiding in Plain Sight @ Amar Gallery

‘These women were at the forefront of the first great movement in contemporary art that American artists uniquely championed and yet…so overlooked were they by their peers that, at the end of this period in 1971, the art critic and historian Linda Nochlin could famously ask: “why have there been no great women artists?” The […]
