Colorado Women to Watch | Suchitra Mattai

Colorado Women to Watch features five widely acclaimed artists who transform CVA’s galleries through works that defy the male-dominated narrative of art. The work of Kim Dickey, Ana María Hernando, Maia Ruth Lee, Suchitra Mattai and Senga Nengudi breaks through boundaries, emphasizes the strength of female artists, and reshapes our perception of power. Through various media we witness these artists repossessing the discarded and retelling subverted histories with narratives of resiliency.


These five artists were nominated for inclusion in the exhibition A New World: Women to Watch 2024 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C.  The Women to Watch exhibition series is designed to increase the visibility of, and critical response to, promising women artists. Nominated for consideration by the Colorado Committee for the National Museum of Women in the Arts (CCNMWA), the five artists were selected to represent Colorado on the national level by Nora Burnett Abrams, Ph.D., Mark G. Falcone Director, MCA Denver. The exhibition at CVA is curated by Cecily Cullen.
