Gendered Value: Curators’ Choice
Feb 10 2016 - Jun 5 2016

Gendered Value: Curators’ Choice places the permanent collections of the Davis Museum within the context of feminist art history. This exhibition seeks to illuminate the complex interplay between gender and value via artworks that have rarely been on view. Selected by eight members of the curatorial staff, the works highlight a unique cross-section of the collections, across periods, genres, and cultures. Drawing upon individual expertise, each curator examines works that encapsulate their personal conception of “Gendered Value."


Curated by Alicia LaTores, Curatorial Assistant, with generous support from the Wellesley College Friends of Art.
