University's Groundbreaking 'Seductive Subversion' Exhibit to Receive AICA/USA Award
Curator Sid Sachs to accept prestigious award given annually by the International Association of Art Critics
January 18, 2011
"Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968," the groundbreaking exhibition developed and premiered at the University of the Arts' Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery last year by curator Sid Sachs, has been selected to receive an International Association of Art Critics (AICA) Award in the "Thematic Show Nationally" category.
This prestigious award, given annually for the last 25 years by the U.S. section of the AICA, honors artists, curators, museums, galleries and other cultural institutions in recognition of excellence in the conception and realization of exhibitions. The winning projects were nominated and voted on by the 400 active members to honor outstanding exhibitions of the previous season.
The awards ceremony and dinner will take place on March 14 at Cooper Union's Rose Auditorium in New York City.
Featuring more than 50 works by two dozen women artists, "Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968" just ended its Brooklyn Museum run and was recently featured in both The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor.
The exhibit moves to Tufts University Art Gallery at Aidekman Arts Center January 20 - April 3.
