Women to Watch

Women to Watch is an exhibition series held every two to three years 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 a collaboration between the museum and the national and international outreach committees. Held every two to three years, Women to Watch features emerging and underrepresented artists from the states and countries in which the museum has committees. Each exhibition focuses on a specific theme or 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 artists for inclusion in the exhibition.
