Join Dr. Molleen Theodore, Associate Curator of Programs at the Yale University Art Gallery and MOMA Educator, for a lecture focused on modern and contemporary artwork produced by women. We will look closely at objects across media and discuss social and historical context, reception, and institutional structures, positioning women at the center of this story. Almost fifty years after Linda Nochlin's groundbreaking essay, Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?, there is still much to uncover about the role and contributions of women in the history of art.
