A Radical Alteration: Women’s Studio Workshop as a Sustainable Model for Art Making

BIMA, and its Founder Cynthia Sears, are proud to host this traveling exhibition celebrating Women’s Studio Workshop’s 50th Anniversary. This exhibition, curated by Maymanah Farhat, looks at the organization’s rich history as a proponent of book arts for marginalized communities in the U.S., where documentation and critical analysis in the field are still largely reserved for White male artists. Through artists’ books, this exhibition will look at how the organization’s policies, programming, and operations have evolved over the last fifty years, thus creating a space where the conditions of art making and institutional support are in the service of a sustainable and more equitable art ecosystem.
