"Americans in Paris: Artists Working in Postwar France, 1946–1962" is the first major exhibition to examine the historical impact of the expatriate art scene in Paris after World War II, and delves into the various circles of artists who made France their home during an era of intense geopolitical realignment. This international loan exhibition showcases some 130 works by approximately 70 artists, providing a fresh perspective on a moment of creative ferment too often overshadowed by the contemporaneous ascendancy of the New York City art scene.
"Berthe Weill: Art Dealer of the Parisian Avant-Garde" surveys the groundbreaking career of the first modern woman art dealer. Berthe Weill (1865–1951) championed many fledgling masters of modern art early on—such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Amedeo Modigliani—as well as numerous others who did not achieve wide acclaim.
In 1996, artist and philanthropist Susan Unterberg founded the Anonymous Was a Woman (AWAW) award, making a simple, yet radical commitment to redress the lack of institutional support for women-identifying visual artists over the age of 40. Showcasing work by a selection of awardees from AWAW’s first 25 years, the exhibition explores several themes surrounding anonymity and, ultimately, celebrates the transformative impact women artists have made on contemporary art since the award’s founding.
