Dangerous Women is a groundbreaking exhibition focused on women artists from around the globe. These artists have exposed themselves to danger and taken great risks to make their art. From the Civil Rights and Women’s Movements of the 1960s to the recent advent of #MeToo and “Black Lives Matter,” the successive generations featured in the show bring a renewed awareness of the importance of women’s voices. Their art compels us to think differently about a world in which gender and racial inequalities persist and women continue to be objectified and endangered. The project redresses the ongoing struggle of women for independent, free expression and pays tribute to those dangerous women whose art has been transformative to the culture. After its presentation in Arizona, the exhibition will travel to 3-4 major cities in the U.S. and abroad.
Warhol acquires the first of several compact 35 mm cameras, and over the next 11 years shot approximately 130,000 black-and-white images, claiming that “having a few rolls of film to develop gives me a good reason to get up in the morning.”
