Though often overlooked, the creative and intellectual expression of women has had a profound and continuous effect on our cultural and political landscape. As artists, activists, writers, and thinkers, women have dramatically altered the way we experience, understand, and visualize the world. Highlighting transformative figures such as Audre Lorde, Angela Davis, Pina Bausch, Marsha P. Johnson, and Ana Mendieta, this wide-ranging survey encompasses enlightening documentary portraits, compelling narratives, and adventurous experimental works by and about visionary women who refused to be second-guessed or silenced.

Guest curated by Dessane Lopez Cassell
