Women's Histories, Feminist Histories

The culmination of MASP’s 2019 program centered on women artists throughout history

Over the last few years, The São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP) has undertaken a pioneering effort to include artwork by women in both its permanent collection and its programming. The museum’s 2019 program was dedicated to women artists, and this publication is the culmination of that effort. Women’s Histories, Feminist Histories combines the catalogs of two parallel, complementary exhibitions organized in dialogue at MASP: Women’s Histories: Artists before 1900, curated by Julia Bryan-Wilson, Lilia Moritz Schwarcz and Mariana Leme, and Feminist Histories: Artists after 2000, curated by Isabella Rjeille. The juxtaposition of these two exhibitions with similar focuses but different scopes within a single publication allows us to establish dialogues between artwork from different eras.

Artists include
: Maria Graham, Tarsila do Amaral, Anna Bella Geiger, Leonor Antunes, Gego, Catarina Simão, Jenn Nkiru, Akosua Adoma Owusu, Laura Huertas Millán and Anna Maria Maiolino.
