Women to Watch

Women to Watch is an exhibition series designed to increase the visibility of female artists who deserve greater international recognition and an opportunity to exhibit in a major museum in the United States.

Women to Watch is developed specifically for NMWA’s national and international outreach committees. Every two to three years, the Museum hosts an exhibition featuring emerging and under-represented women artists. Each exhibition focuses on a specific medium chosen by the museum's curators. The committees consult with contemporary art curators in their respective regions to create shortlists of artists.  NMWA’s curatorial team then selects the artists and their works for inclusion in the exhibition.

The next Women to Watch exhibition is scheduled for 2018.   The chosen medium is metal.   In recognition of this, the UK Friends will launch a "Year of Metal" programme with exhibition visits, demonstrations and studio tours referencing the metal theme.

UK Friends of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (“UK Friends of NMWA”) supports the mission of NMWA by championing art by women in the UK, past and present.
