2018: MOCA's Year of the Woman?

"Laura Owens," now at the Whitney, will be coming to MOCA's Geffen Contemporary (Nov. 4, 2018—Mar. 25, 2019). It will run simultaneously with the MOCA-organized "Zoe Leonard: Survey," the artist's first major museum exhibition. Shown, Owens' Untitled, 2014.

2018 is shaping up to be MOCA's year of the woman. Also planned is a building-wrap mural by Njideka Akunyili Crosby and an installation by Lauren Halsey. Counting the installations and the Anna Maria Maiolino show now running (through Jan. 22, 2018), MOCA will have five single-artist exhibitions of women in 2018. That equals 2015's total of four big NY museums, in the Guerrilla Girls' accounting.
