The Aldrich Announces 2023 Exhibitions and Programs


The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce its exhibitions and programs for the coming year. In keeping with the museum’s rich history as a pioneering contemporary art institution, 2023 at The Aldrich will feature a series of exhibitions and projects by bold artists who push the boundaries of artistic expression.

Executive Director Cybele Maylone says: “2023 will, as always, be a year of firsts at The Aldrich, with first museum exhibitions and first releases for a range of artists, as well as first presentations of new bodies of work. But the year will also include one last one: 30 years after his first curatorial project for the museum, Richard Klein will conclude his incredible tenure at The Aldrich with the engaging group show Prima Materia.”

52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone On view until January 8, 2023

52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone revisits and celebrates the landmark exhibition Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists, curated by Lucy R. Lippard and presented at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in 1971, a new list of 26 female identifying or non-binary emerging artists representing the development of feminist art practices over the past five decades. 52 Artists span the entire museum – the first exhibition in The Aldrich’s new building, which opened in 2004. 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone is organized by The Aldrich Chief Curator Amy Smith-Stewart, who will bring together the up-and-coming six artists and independent curator Alexandra Schwartz with Caitlin Monachino, Curator and Publications Manager.
