Event details

From the Rubell Collection in Miami, Florida

The increased importance of female artists on the international arena of contemporary art is becoming more evident to historians and collectors alike.

In 2015 the Rubell Family launched the exhibition NOMANSLAND, an exceptional cross-section of advanced art by over 100 female painters and sculptors.  It surprised and stunned audiences by its prescience.

This lecture will introduce these 21st century female artists and assert their influence on contemporary art.  Join art historian Kevin Costello as we learn that Art is always provocative and fresh, yet seated in its history, giving life to new ideas.

This exciting, live virtual art lecture series is free to Alliance members or $15 for non-members. You may become a member to participate.

Please note: this interactive and hands-on lecture is hosted online, which means you get to enjoy it from the comfort of your living room, studio or kitchen table! It will be hosted via Zoom.
