"Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale" on View at Montclair Museum of Art

How do women artists take up space and scale in their work? That's the primary question asked in the new exhibition, "Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale," at the Montclair Art Museum (MAM) on view through Jan 7, 2024. Inspired by a 2021 show at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), the exhibition offers twenty-three works in a range of media including paintings, sculptures, paper, photographs, and more. Among them are ten alluring artworks from PAFA alongside thirteen foundational works from the Montclair Art Museum's collection of American women artists. The exhibiting artists represent a range of ages and diverse cultures in their work, demonstrating how to take up space with stories of their identities and cultural heritages.
