Creating space: artist and post-war abstraction

Exhibition April 15 − August 13, 2017
New York's Museum of modern art (MOMA ) presents visitors the exhibition "Making space: artist and postwar abstraction". This exhibition illuminates the great achievements of women artists after the Second world war (1945) and the beginning of the feminist movement (circa 1968).
In the postwar period, social changes have made it possible for more women to work professionally as artists, but their work is often rejected. Men still dominated the art form, and few artists have achieved success in this field.
The exhibition presents about 100 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, prints, textiles and ceramics, authored by over 50 artists. All works belong to the collection of the new York Museum of modern art.
Among the exhibits of the paintings of Lee Krasner, Helen frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell; radical geometry Ligii Clark, Lijie Dad and Diego; restoration of abstraction, Agnes Martin, Anne Truitt, and Jo Baer. Among the works of the yarns and fibres are distinguished volume forms of Magdalena Abakanowicz, the work of Sheila Hicks and Lenore Tawney. The sculptural part provided by the works of Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse and others.
The exhibition also presents a little-known exhibits: collages by Anne Ryan, photographs Gertrudes Altshul, as well as recent acquisitions MOMA – the work of Ruth Asawa, Carol Rama and Alma Thomas.
