This year was a strong one for women in the arts.
This year was a strong one for female artists, and next year it appears that it might be even better. In 2016, all of the solo shows at SculptureCenter in Queens, New York, will be by women. We’re also looking forward to Catherine Opie’s “Portraits and Landscapes” at Lehmann Maupin gallery in New York in January, and “Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947 – 2016” in March at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel in Los Angeles.
Below, we’ve found 20 emerging female artists who we’ll also be tracking in 2016.
10. Pamela Council
Working within sculpture, textiles, print-based media and performance, artist Pamela Council’s projects explore style and culture. The New York- and New England-based artist was part of the Studio Museum Harlem’s “Salon Style” exhibition this past summer with her work, Flo Jo World Record Nails (2012). Her work will be on view in Philadelphia next year in the exhibition I found god in myself.
