Press Release

Harmony Hammond included in Women in Abstraction: Another History of Abstraction in the 20th Century, a group exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, France.

The institution's press release follows:

Women in Abstraction aims to trace a lesser-told history of art primarily from the 20th and 21st centuries by focusing on the contribution of women artists to abstraction. The exhibition includes over 200 artists working across disciplines, such as dance, applied arts, photography, film, and performance art from Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, Europe, and the United States in order to tell an expansive and complex story with many voices.

Many exhibitions dealing with abstraction underestimate the fundamental role played by women in the development of this movement. By focusing on the paths of artists, some of whom were unfairly ignored, the exhibition proposes another history. Women in Abstraction brings to light the decisive turning points that have marked this movement, evoking both the research undertaken by artists, individually or as a group, and the founding exhibitions.

The Exhibition organized by the Centre Pompidou, Paris, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

Curators: Christine Macel and Lekha Hileman Waitoller
