Women House

Laurie Simmons, Walking House, 1989

Women Artists Deconstruct Domesticity in Women House exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Women House, a provocative new exhibition at the NMWA, challenges traditional ideas about gender and domesticity. NMWA is the only U.S. venue for the exhibition, which is organized by La Monnaie de Paris.

The exhibition presents work by 36 global artists, including Louise Bourgeois, Judy Chicago, Mona Hatoum, Zanele Muholi, Leticia Parente, Martha Rosler, Miriam Schapiro, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, Rachel Whiteread and Francesca Woodman.

Continuing the dialogue with their artistic foremothers of the 1970s, the contemporary artists in Women House recast conventional ideas about women through painting, photography, sculpture, installation and video. Organized across eight themes, Women House emphasizes the plurality of women’s views on the home from Desperate Housewives to Mobile Homes.

Camille Morineau, director of exhibitions and collections at La Monnaie de Paris who curated Women House with Lucia Pesapane, said, “This exhibition is partially a political gesture. I am hoping that in ten years the level of information about women artists will be the same as for male artists.”


Cindy Sherman, Untitled Film Still #35, 1979
