New Time: Art and Feminisms in the 21st Century is a major survey exploring recent feminist practices in contemporary art. The exhibition examines the values, strategies, and ways of life reflected in current feminist art. New Time aims to demonstrate that feminism in the twenty-first century is multifaceted, encompassing many complex issues and perspectives, and therefore cannot be reduced to a single subject, style, or agenda. Although artworks made since 2000 are the primary focus, the objects and installations on view span several generations, mediums, geographies, and political sensibilities. In this way the project seeks to convey the heterogeneous, intergenerational, and gender-fluid nature of feminist practices today. New Time presents a kaleidoscopic view of feminist artistic practices, thought, and experiences. Featuring more than 150 works by seventy-seven artists and collectives, the exhibition is organized around eight themes: hysteria; the gaze; revisiting historical subjects through a feminist lens; the fragmented female body; gender fluidity; labor, domesticity, and activism; female anger; and feminist utopias.
“The Warhol Foundation aims to support the full range of artistic activity in America—from exhibitions at major museums to neighborhood projects by artist collectives. Arts writers, through the range and specialization of their individual interests, touch upon all of this activity—illuminating and interrogating it and bringing it into conversation with the public. Support for artists is not complete without support for the circulation and serious consideration of their ideas. The Arts Writers Grant program keeps artists at the center of cultural dialogue and debate—in our opinion, right where they belong.”
