ICA congratulates Anonymous Was A Woman award winners


We’re celebrating ICA solo exhibitors Janine Antoni, Nicole Eisenman, and Beverly Semmes, who have each received one of this year’s Anonymous Was A Woman awards.

Anonymous Was A Woman is an unrestricted grant of $25,000 that enables women artists, over forty years of age and at a significant juncture in their lives or careers, to continue to grow and pursue their work.

Semmes’ first solo museum exhibition was at ICA in 1989; her ceramics featured in Dirt on Delight (2009); and this year, she transformed our galleries into bustling ateliers for the ICA@50 program Life Drawing Studio. Four-time ICA exhibitor Antoni, an artist working in performance, sculpture, and photography, most recently contributed to the group show Pictures, Patents, Monkeys, and More: On Collecting (2002).

Eisenman’s major mid-career survey exhibition Dear Nemesis: Nicole Eisenman 1993–2003 will open at ICA this fall, furthering our strong commitment to supporting talented women artists.
