Join Paul Gunther of the Gracie Mansion Conservancy and its guest curator, Jessica Bell Brown, for a private AFA tour of She Persists: A Century of Women Artists in New York at Gracie Mansion.
The exhibition features 60 artworks, objects, and archival ephemera from celebrated artists such as Lee Krasner, Ana Mendieta, Faith Ringgold, Cindy Sherman and Kara Walker, to name just a few, and range from the earliest years of the 20th century to the present. The show is organized across four central themes: contending with history, body as battleground, picturing people, and expanding abstraction. Together, these works tell the story of tenacious endurance across modern history, even in the face of great adversity.
