The Baker Museum Lecture Series
Why Women Artists?
Rangsook Yoon, Ph.D., Director of Curatorial Affairs, The Baker Museum
This spring at The Baker Museum, our new exhibitions Blurring Boundaries: The Women of American Abstract Artists, 1936-Present and Making a Mark: American Women Artists expand art historical narratives by celebrating the work of women artists from the early 20th century to the present. Join Director of Curatorial Affairs Rangsook Yoon, PhD., for this virtual presentation, which provides an overview of the two shows while also examining the importance of making a space for women-centric narratives in museums. Yoon further offers her insights into her favorite works in the exhibitions and shares unique perspectives from which works of divergent styles and media on display could be appreciated.
This lecture will be presented virtually using an online video platform. Patrons will be sent access information as the date of the event approaches.
This presentation is part of the exhibitions Blurring Boundaries: The Women of American Abstract Artists, 1936-Present and Making a Mark: American Women Artists.
