In Paris, the largest all-female art exhibition in the world has opened at the Pompidou Centre. elles@centrepompidou will bring together a selection of over 500 works and over 200 artists, including Sonia Delaunay, Frida Khalo, Dorothea Tanning, Joan Mitchell, Maria-Elena Vieira da Silva beside contemporary giants Louise Bourgeois, Rosemarie Trockel, Rachel Whiteread, VALIE EXPORT and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster.
Why now? Apparently, even a few years ago the gallery would not have had enough work by women artists.

Speaking of Katie Pretti, whose fantastic, emotional oil stick drawings on paper pull us in almost every time, she is part of the summer group show, titled Young Canada Presents: Barometric Reading Series 1 at Toronto’s Le Gallery. The all-woman show will also feature pieces by Sarah Clifford-Rachotte, Amanda Nedham and fun works by Kristi Malakoff and painter Melanie Authier.
The show opens tonight and will be up until August 30th.
