This yearly two-panel series considers the most current critical issues and concerns for women artists. The 2010 panel
series will address funding for women artists’ projects and recent museum exhibitions that highlight women artists’
work. Looking to the future, the panels will also address such questions as: In the current economy, have opportunities
for woman artists diminished or increased? Do recent surveys at major museums mean increased visibility for all
women artists? How are museums re-envisioning their permanent collections? Are women artists gaining ground on the
walls of museums and in permanent collections?
This panel series is made possible by The Tribeca Performing Arts Center, The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist
Art, and by public funds from The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with A.I.R. Gallery,
The Feminist Art Project, and The Institute for Women and Art at Rutgers.
