«Birgit Jürgenssen: Io Sono», Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Bergamo, Italy March 7–May 19

The first Italian institutional exhibition devoted to the late Austrian feminist artist Birgit Jürgenssen is a blowout: it will take over every room of the museum and include in excess of 150 works, among them drawings, collages, sculptures, photographs, and more. Jürgenssen is perhaps best known for work that challenged her day’s dominant modes of feminine expression. As the artist’s career developed, so did her interests: her later work expanded to address the role of nature and culture in the broader concepts of identity. — J.C.
