Out of Place: A Feminist Look at the Collection

Jan 24 – Sept 13, 2020
200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238, USA

What does it mean for an artist to be “out of place” in a major museum or unwelcome in the mainstream art world? How do traditional exhibition formats, and the traditional hierarchy of disciplines, end up leaving unorthodox artists in limbo? Featuring 44 female artists who have struggled with societal expectations and the challenge of fitting in, this show seeks to reframe their work in broader contexts. —E.C.
