If you ask someone to name five artists, they will likely name prominent male artists, but how many people can list five women artists? Throughout March’s Women’s History Month, we will be joining institutions around the world to answer this very question posed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NWMA). We will be featuring a woman artist every day this month, and highlighting artists in our current exhibition Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection which explores a wide range of art-making, focusing on enduring political subjects—encompassing gender, race, and class—that remain relevant today. The show is on view until March 31, 2019.

Together we hope to draw attention to the gender and race imbalance in the art world, inspire conversation and awareness, and hopefully add a few more women to everyone’s lists.

LaToya Ruby Frazier uses social documentary and portraiture to create a personal visual history of an industrial town’s decline. Through photographic works of her family and their hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Frazier offers an intimate exploration of the effects of deindustrialization on the lives of individuals and communities. Frazier began to explore Braddock’s history in her series Notion of Family, a project uses the bodies of the artist, her mother, and her grandmother, both to reveal complex intergenerational relationships and to serve as a metaphor for their town’s decay.

“My grandmother braided my hair as she did when I was a child, with pigtails, barrettes, and ribbons. It was her way of adorning me as her champion porcelain doll. This image captures a rare moment where she wanted to make a portrait of me with her and her dolls. I set up one light and ran a cable release behind my back. There was nobody present but Grandma Ruby and me. We both quietly sat up and looked over our shoulders into the lens. I pressed the cable release, and the shutter clicked for nearly one second.” —LRF
