This exhibition highlights seventeen mid- to late twentieth-century women artists selected from the permanent collection who worked in modernist styles, yet are not often exhibited today despite their significant skills, careers and accomplishments.
The first virtual exhibition presented by the Derfner, “F11” refers to the function key that opens full screen viewing in internet browsers. In the Covid-era when art spaces are closed or at limited capacity, online exhibitions have become ubiquitous but often showcase works that exist as objects in the real world. “F11” inverts this practice: It features digital paintings best viewed on-screen. On view April 11-August 8, 2021.
This exhibition features prints from the collection that date from the early 20th century through the mid-1970s by 16 artists. Mostly emigres from Eastern Europe to other parts of the world and depicting traditional Jewish life, many were part of important 20th century art movements during a period of rapid social, political and cultural change. On view February 23–May 10, 2020.
