Visit the High Museum of Art for Pioneers, Influencers, and Rising Voices: Women in the Collection
This permanent installation at the High Museum of Art features artworks made exclusively by women. Pioneers, Influencers, and Rising Voices: Women in the Collection delves into several themes including social hierarchy, feminism, and more.
The artists represented include some of the most influential voices of the past fifty years, such as Kiki Smith, Lorna Simpson, and Shirin Neshat, as well as Atlanta-based artists Annette Cone-Skelton and Rocío Rodríguez.
Whether exploring the multidimensionality of installation art, or refashioning Minimalist forms and strategies, the exhibit reflects on major movements in Civil Rights concerning women. From the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which granted some women the right to vote. To voter suppression strategies seen today.
