About the exhibition

The exhibition Ladies First! showing the Neue Galerie Graz from September 2020 to February 2021 sheds light on women’s art in and from Styria from the mid-19th to mid-20th century. With the second wave of women’s emancipation which arose with the renewal movement of the 1960s, art, too, increasingly began to devote itself to the status of women and men in a patriarchally shaped society. In a continuation of the historic show, this theme is closely examined with works from the Neue Galerie’s international collection ranging from the 1970s to the present day.
