Women in Abstraction is the first in-person and virtual exhibition in our BIPOC Curatorial Program. Abstraction has been examined through a more critical historical lens recently as documents reveal the disparities left out of many conversations. The New Art Center sought abstract works that engaged in gender, race, class and history as it relates to abstraction. We invited artists to submit work that helps to push and provoke dialogues about abstraction throughout history.

This exhibition is a part of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Curatorial Program. As a community arts education space, the New Art Center believes that art creates change. With a 44+ year history of building community through art, we recognize it is crucial to use our platform to fight systemic racism and social injustices. The BIPOC Curatorial Program enables curators who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color to develop and share exhibitions that spark dialogue, share personal vision, and personal experiences through curation. We hope this opportunity will create much needed dialogue to counter systemic racism.

The New Art Corridor is sponsored by The Village Bank, Mark Development, and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

The sponsors of the BIPOC Curatorial Program include: The Harmony Foundation, Newton Cultural Council, and The Cambridge Savings Bank.
