A Century of Women in Prints, 1917-2017

Until the modern era, printmaking was largely considered a male pursuit, due in part to the technological requirements of making prints and the social restrictions placed on women. By the 20th century, however, significant numbers of women had established themselves professionally in the medium. As part of celebrations for the AMAM’s centennial, this exhibition presents prints made by women artists during the museum’s first 100 years. Prints by major artists working in a variety of techniques and styles—including Expressionism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and Minimalism—address issues of history, identity, social justice, and creativity.

The exhibition was curated by Andaleeb Badiee Banta, curator of European and American art, with the assistance of Claire Rasmussen (OC ’19) and Kylie Fisher, summer 2017 IFPDA Foundation curatorial intern.
