WOMEN?
Arken, February 5 – August 14, 2022

What does it mean to be a woman today? What is feminine? Who defines what femininity is? Who can be female? And is femininity gender specific at all?

The exhibition Women? unfolds how Western art history has depicted women from the Modern Breakthrough of the late nineteenth century to the most recent contemporary art. In a wealth of works of art by Danish and international artists, you can explore how artists have, over the course of the past 150 years, reflected, responded to and resisted changing perceptions of both women and gender: from Impressionist portraits to performative body art. From lush studies of nudes to critical examinations of how history is written.
