Contemporary Art from the
Second rotation opening
April 17, 2021 – October 3, 2021
Explore the work of visionary female artists who shaped and changed the ways people think about contemporary art.
What is it: This exhibition highlights contemporary women artists, especially Native artists, and the powerful works they have created that speak to issues of personal identity, political agency, memory and violence against women.
The Eiteljorg Museum’s permanent collection is one of the most important collections of contemporary Native art in the world. Many of the pieces that will be on display were purchased or gifted to the museum through the Eiteljorg’s Contemporary Art Fellowship.
The second rotation of Powerful Women opens on Saturday, April 17 and will focus on works by Black, Latino, Asian American and European American women contemporary artists.
