52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone, Art in America

“Critic and activist Lucy Lippard’s landmark 1971 exhibition of twenty-six women artists at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum was among the first institutional responses to the underrepresentation of women in art history. To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, the museum has reassembled the show’s original cast – including Howardena Pindell, Carol Kinne, and Adrian Piper – and positioned them in dialogue with emerging female-identifying or nonbinary artists. Leilah Babirye, Tourmaline, and Hannah Levy are among the twenty-six additions, all of whom live in New York and have yet to have a major solo museum show, in keeping with Lippard’s original criteria.” Read here.

52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone will be on view June 4, 2022 to January 8, 2023.
