Feminine Moments' newsletter - Queer Portraits

October 2019

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

This must be a first. Baltimore Museum of Art is taking the lead, launching their new 2020 vision: They will only collect works by women next year. Marking the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment (granting the vote to women), they will also focus on women artists, presenting 22 exhibition in 2020. Among the women they'll highlight in their 2020 programme is American queer feminist artist Mickalene Thomas who is known for her portraits of African-American women. Below I include a few posts with some of Mickalene's artist talks. Read more about Baltimore Museum of Art.

In this issue I would like to highlight Sarah Jane Moon's recent exhibition in London and draw your attention to Pamela Dodd's exhibition in Toronto, Canada. This week is last chance to see Pamela's exhibition 'Drawings of tools'. Enjoy!
