HISTORY OF AN EXHIBITION


“WOMEN CHOOSE WOMEN is the first museum exhibition to be chosen with the participation of several hundred women artists – the first, it is hoped, in a series of large museum shows which will continue to survey the range and scope of women’s art.  This achievement is the direct outgrowth of the idea implicit in the formation of Women in the Arts . . . [which] started in April 1971, with a handful of artists and writers getting together to explore solutions to end discrimination against women in the art world.” (From the catalogue.)


Following the initial nominations of over 500 artists chosen by the WIA membership, the final jury process singled out 109 women who were given the honor of participating in the historic exhibition that came to be known as  “WOMEN CHOOSE WOMEN”.
