The Women of Atelier 17:
Modernist Printmaking in Midcentury New York
with art historian
Christina Weyl, Ph.D.
Discover the pioneering women printmakers of Midcentury New York! Christina Weyl will share compelling stories from her book, The Women of Atelier 17 (Yale University Press, 2019), about eight women who worked at the avant-garde printmaking workshop Atelier 17 between 1940 and 1955. This workshop operated as an uncommonly egalitarian laboratory for revolutionizing print technique, style, and scale. It facilitated women artists’ engagement with modernist styles, providing a forum for extraordinary achievements that shaped postwar sculpture, fiber art,
neo-Dadaism, and the Pattern and Decoration movement.
Christina Weyl received her BA from Georgetown University (2005) and completed her doctorate in Art History at Rutgers University (2015). Her research has been supported by the Metropolitan Museum, Getty Foundation, Mellon Foundation, and other institutional grants. She has published in Art in Print, Print Quarterly, and Archives of American Art Journal and contributed to several anthologies and exhibition catalogues. From 2014-2018, she served as Co-President of the Association of Print Scholars, a non-profit professional organization she co-founded in 2014.
