13 Women at OCMA
Orange County Museum of Art
October 8, 2022 – August 20, 2023
13 Women marks the museum’s 60th anniversary, paying homage to the thirteen women who founded the Balboa Pavilion Gallery, the earliest iteration of OCMA, which opened in 1962. On view in The Muzzy Family Special Exhibitions Pavilion, 13 Women is curated by Heidi Zuckerman and presented with multiple rotations over the course of almost a full year. The exhibition presents work from the 1960s to the present by artists central to the museum’s collection. Each rotation is centered on the work of thirteen pioneering female artists, each of whom share the visionary qualities of the museum’s founders. The thirteen women included in the first rotation, on view October 8, are Alice Aycock, Joan Brown, Lee Bul, Lucy Bull, Sarah Cain, Vija Celmins, Mary Corse, Mary Heilmann, Barbara Kruger, Cady Noland, Catherine Opie, Hilary Pecis and Agnes Pelton. The work of these pioneering artists is complemented by selected works from OCMA’s collection, including Charles Ray’s Ink Box (1986) and Self Portrait (1990), both acquired from OCMA’s presentation of Ray’s first solo museum exhibition, alongside important works by John Altoon, Chris Burden and Richard Diebenkorn. The exhibition is punctuated by a new site-specific painting by Sarah Cain in The Avenue of the Arts Gallery.
