Love metal work? Stop by!
Express lunchtime talks 30 minutes or fewer are offered most Wednesdays. Facilitated by museum staff members, these conversation-driven thematic talks highlight three to six works on view.
This week, NMWA Associate Curator Virginia Treanor discusses a sampling of works in Heavy Metal Women to Watch 2018.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
The fifth installment of NMWA s Women to Watch exhibition series showcases contemporary artists working in metal, including sculpture, jewelry, and conceptual forms. Heavy Metal engages with the fluidity between fine art, design, and craft, whose traditional definitions are rooted in gender discrimination.
