The exhibition celebrates the life and career of the contemporary painter and printmaker who emerged out of New York’s male-dominated art scene in the 1970s as a strong female presence in the Neo-Expressionist movement of the 1980s. The museum will also display works from female printmakers and sculptors from its permanent collection.
