Women – Brushes with Greatness

How wonderful to open a page about women artists in Wmagazine.

 

BRUSHES WITH GREATNESS

W visits the studios of eight women painters who are featured in The Museum of Modern Art’s new exhibit “The Forever Now”—and finds not 
a single wallflower in the bunch.

When pursuing further I found the show on MOMA

The Forever Now: Contemporary Painting in an Atemporal World presents paintings by 17 contemporary artists that reflect a singular peculiarly of our time in culture: these works are atemporal, a term coined by the science fiction writer and futurologist William Gibson. “Atemporality,” or timelessness, which is also evident in contemporary literature, music, and fashion, manifests itself in painting as an ahistorical cultural free-for-all, in which styles, techniques, and subjects from many different eras coexist, sometimes in a single work, making it difficult to identify the period in which an artwork was made.
