Women of Abstract Expressionism Exhibition

Selvedge

Including artists predominantly from the Bay area and West Coast of America – such as, Mary Abbott, Jay DeFeo, Perle Fine, Helen Frankenthaler, Sonia Gechtoff, Grace Hartigan, Elaine de Kooning and Joan Mitchell – Women of Abstract Expressionism focuses on the expressive freedom of direct gesture and process at the core of abstract expressionism, while revealing inward reverie and painterly expression in these works by individuals responding to particular places, memories and life experiences.

Judith Godwin_Epic_1959 “For millennia women have been creators and innovators of artistic expression,” said Christoph Heinrich, Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the DAM. “Few women have found their way into the accounts of art history, and not until the 20th century have they received some of the credit that is long overdue. We are delighted to be the first U.S. museum to tell these stories of the most prolific female Abstract Expressionists.” Women of Abstract Expressionism Denver Art Museum Until 25 September 2016 Lee Krasner_Untitled_1942
