Vibrant images present over 175 works from the museum’s collections, including key artworks by Louise Bourgeois, Lalla Essaydi, Frida Kahlo, Hung Liu, Clara Peeters, Faith Ringgold, Niki de Saint Phalle, Amy Sherald, Alma Woodsey Thomas, and many others. Thematic chapters weave connections across medium, genre, and time.
