Arizona State University Art Museum has been awarded a $50,000 Curatorial Research Fellowship from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Launched in 2008, the Andy Warhol Foundation Curatorial Research Fellowship aims to encourage curatorial research leading to new scholarship in the field of contemporary art. This grant will support guest curator Elizabeth Armstrong in research, travel and interviews for the upcoming ASU Art Museum exhibition “Dangerous Women” and the exhibition’s companion catalog.  

“Dangerous Women” is an exhibition focused on women-identified artists from around the globe who have exposed themselves to danger and taken great risks to make their art. From the women’s and civil rights movements to the advent of #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, the successive generations featured in the show bring a renewed awareness of the importance of women’s voices.

According to Armstrong, their artworks compel us to think differently about a world in which gender and racial inequalities persist and women continue to be objectified and endangered. The project redresses the ongoing struggle of women for independent, free expression and pays tribute to those dangerous women whose art has been transformative.

Co-curated by ASU Art Museum’s Brittany Corrales, “Dangerous Women” is scheduled to open in spring 2023.

After its presentation in Arizona, the exhibition will travel to major cities in the U.S. and abroad.
