McNay Art Museum presents "Limitless! Five Women Reshape Contemporary Art"
"Limitless! Five Women Reshape Contemporary Art" grew out of the McNay’s 2018 exhibition, "Immersed: Local to Global Art Sensations." Like "Immersed," "Limitless!' includes a room-sized environment by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Unlike its predecessor, the new exhibition features artworks only by women artists - joining Kusama’s installation are examples by Martine Gutierrez, Letitia Huckaby, Sandy Skoglund, and Jennifer Steinkamp.
"Limitless!" is organized with a focus on exploring how artists of different generations manifest their ideas and make them relevant to their own and future audiences. The artwork of these five reflects the dynamic and dramatic shifts occurring in the visual arts over the past several decades. No matter their age or approach, one thing is common among all five: each artist defies categorization and has followed her own singular vision regardless of art world trends and industry expectations.
While the McNay has a history of exhibiting and collecting the work of women artists - grounded in the Museum’s founding by Marion Koogler McNay - "Limitless!" pushes this museum-wide commitment in exciting new directions.
