The exhibition is featured in the roundup, “These Are the Art Shows and Events to See This Season.”

The show examines the representation of Black women over the past two centuries and brings together more than sixty works of art, objects, and artist books to challenge histories of marginalization and to make visible the presence of women of color in American art history.

There’s a Woman in Every Color runs through January 30, 2022.
