Linda Nochlin: The Maverick She (Until 10/08/2020)
From Thursday, July 23, 2020
To Thursday, October 08, 2020

Linda Nochlin (1931–2017), award-winning scholar, art historian and critic, devoted her career to forging a new appreciation for the contributions of women in the arts. Her 1971 essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” shifted the critical discourse to a place from which feminist artists, thinkers and activists have never looked back. NMWA’s Betty Boyd Dettre Library and Research Center and the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art are collaborating to showcase a selection of Nochlin's papers and ephemera (acquired by the Archives of American Art in 2018) that illuminate her remarkable contributions to art and culture.

Location National Museum of Women in the Arts
