Women artists have long been a focus of attention at the Davis Museum. Inspired by major works by Rosa Acle, Alice Rahon, Lygia Pape, Gego, Fanny Sanín, and Liliana Porter on view in the exhibition, this keynote lecture considers the essential role played by women artists in the history of abstraction in Latin American art—and beyond.
