52 Artists: a Feminist Milestone at Aldrich Museum Includes 15 Yale Women

52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone will run at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum from June 6, 2022 TO January 8, 2023. The exhibition includes works from 15 Yale affiliated female-identifying or nonbinary artists.

52 Artists celebrates the fifty-first anniversary of the historic exhibition Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists, curated by Lucy R. Lippard and presented at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in 1971. The exhibition showcases work by the artists included in the original 1971 exhibition, alongside a new roster of twenty-six female identifying or nonbinary emerging artists, tracking the evolution of feminist art practices over the past five decades. 52 Artists will encompass the entirety of the Aldrich Museum (approx. 8,000 sq. ft)—the first exhibition to do so in The Aldrich’s new building which was inaugurated in 2004.
