Borders also delineate how we tell stories at the Birmingham Museum of Art. As in many encyclopedic art museums, our galleries separate the arts of Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe. A new initiative called Intersections crosses these “borders” to explore the connections between cultures.
International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women and serves as a platform for gender equality. Our current contemporary exhibition Third Space /shifting conversations about contemporary art is a natural place for the BMA to begin a conversation about contemporary women artists and their work.
