"This exhibition unites almost a century of work by 49 women and  nonbinary artists in a range of media drawn exclusively from the  Hirshhorn’s permanent collection. One-quarter of the artworks have been  made in the past decade by the likes of Loie Hollowell, Rachel Jones,  Deana Lawson, Sondra Perry and Kiyan Williams. One-third have never been  on view at the Hirshhorn. Recent acquisitions, including pieces by Dana  Awartani, Zanele Muholi and Billie Zangewa, reflect the museum’s  mission to acquire and highlight global voices.

Titled after a 1963 painting by American pop artist Rosalyn Drexler,  whose work is featured in the first gallery, “Put It This Way” is  organized by Hirshhorn Associate Curator Anne Reeve. The exhibition  speaks to traditionally marginalized artists’ decisive and virtuosic  achievements, and investigates a wide array of aesthetic, political and  historical concerns. The full-floor presentation is intended to  encourage conversations around the significance of gender in creating  and perceiving an artwork, the effects of categorizing artists by gender  as well as the museum’s role and responsibilities in stewarding the  national collection of modern and contemporary art."
