Women Publish Women: The Print Boom

Presented in two rotations, this gallery celebrates three entrepreneurs who founded printmaking workshops in the late 1950s and ’60s and played an underappreciated role in the revitalization of American printmaking: Tatyana Grosman of Universal Limited Art Editions (New York), June Wayne of Tamarind Lithography (Los Angeles), and Kathan Brown of Crown Point Press (San Francisco).

Part of "Women Take the Floor" (Art of the Americas Wing, Level 3, September 13, 2019–May 3, 2021)
This exhibition challenges the dominant history of 20th-century American art by focusing on the overlooked and underrepresented work and stories of women artists. This reinstallation—or “takeover”—of Level 3 of the Art of the Americas Wing advocates for diversity, inclusion, and gender equity in museums, the art world, and beyond. With more than 200 works drawn primarily from the MFA’s collection, the exhibition is organized into seven thematic galleries. Interactive programming creates a dynamic space that welcomes visitor participation, and new rotations of artwork introduced over the run of the exhibition ensure that new voices and perspectives are available on each return visit.
