Milwaukee Women’s Art Library

August 18, 2020 – December 27, 2020

Women operating outside of economic centers are often overlooked not only by the regions which overshadow them, but within their own localities, further distancing the women of future generations from the histories of their own communities. The Milwaukee Women’s Art Library attempts to provide a solution to this issue by developing a library and archive founded on principles of solidarity, difference, and action. Curated by Milwaukee native and Chicago-based curator Ashley Janke, the MWAL will open in August 2020 at the Charles Allis Art Museum, preceded by numerous meetings and work sessions to bring the new library together. The MWAL will act as a space for the collective remembrance of women and non-binary people of all ethnicities whose actions, work and narratives may otherwise become lost in the ebb and flow of the constantly shifting cultural landscape.
