6 Women Artists Exhibitions You Must See in New York This Fall


SiiZU’s list of art shows by influential women.


SiiZU’s list of influential artists exhibiting their art in New York this fall. From minimalism to blaring erotic art, explore and experience the wonderful world of art through these artists.


1: Pipilotti Rist 


Unapologetically talented video artist, Pipilotti Rist has created videos such as ‘Ever is Overall’ which influenced Beyonce’s Hold Up video. Her large lavish work named ‘Pixel Forest’ at the New Museum is presented in projections and installations hosting new experiences for viewers. Her work explores human experience intertwined with ambiguity and feathery computerized images. Pipilotti says of her exhibition: “I am interested in the combination of nature and technology; these are not two different things because all technology is only a very bad copy of our senses. I like to think that the strongest projector is the sun itself.”. Pixel Forest is a beautiful experience and a must-see for anyone.


Location: New Museum- 235 Bowery, New York, NY 10002

Time: Through Jan 15, 2017.


2: Agnes Martin


Agnes Martin is profoundly famous for her abstract work and minimalist eye. Minimalist lovers, this is a gallery that is a definite must-visit. Her focus on silence and simplicity is evident in each painting. About her famous painting ‘The Tree’ (pictured above), an epitome painting of minimalism, Agnes quotes: “When I first made a grid, I happened to be thinking of the innocence of trees, and then a grid came into my mind and I thought it represented innocence, and I still do, and so I painted it and then I was satisfied. I thought, 'This is my vision.'.


Location: Guggenheim-1071 5th Ave, New York, NY 10128
Time: Oct 7,  2016 - Jan 11, 2017


3: Cecily Brown


Cecily Brown is a British painter now based in New York. Her erotic abstract work is explosive in imagery, color, and excitement. The rapid strokes and suggestive images are created in an abstract expressionist style. Her solo exhibition ‘Rehearsal’ is going to be featured in The Drawing Center focusing on her initial drawings and sketches.


Location: Drawing Center- 35 Wooster St, New York, NY 10013

Time: Oct 7, 2016 - Dec 18, 2017


4: Diane Arbus


Diane Arbus is quoted as one of the most influential and provocative artists of the 20th century, taking photographs that were able to truly accentuate the person’s character. Arbus worked from New York to Coney Island to the LES, taking photographs that perfectly captured the essence of the eccentric people in New York. This exhibition explores rare pictures from her earliest works from 1956 to 1962, hence titled: ‘In The Beginning’.


Location: MET- 1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028

Time: through Nov 27, 2016


5: Carmen Herrera


Carmen Herrera is the definition of inspiring. Passionately working on her art for decades, she’s displayed her work in intimate settings, but is getting her first solo show in over 20 years! Her show ‘Lines of Sight’ is an exploration of Herrera’s style developed over her time spent in Havana and New York. Her geometric abstract paintings experiment with the canvas, the figures, and with the viewer. She has since been featured numerous times from Artnet to the New York times.


Location: Whitney Museum- 99 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014

Time: Sep 16, 2016 - Jan 2, 2017  


6: Marilyn Minter

Marilyn Minter is a New York artist whose erotic, unabashed, photography has been featured in several solo exhibitions around the globe. In 1989 she created a set of work based off of hardcore pornography believing that women should have sexual imagery for their own pleasure. Throughout the years, she has refined her work, playing with undertones of pornography but with a focus towards glamor and glitter, and the dirt that comes with it. Titled ‘Pretty/Dirty’ Marilyn’s work will be a close up mirror as she tells us to ‘look at who we really are’.

Location: Brooklyn Museum- 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238

Time: Nov 4, 2016 - Apr 2, 2017
