Louise Fishman (United States, 1939-2021) was an established artist known for her ambivalent engagement with male-centered abstract painting traditions.

Her physical and process-driven work remakes the abstract expressionist gesture and the minimalist grid into tools that communicate history and emotion centered in her identities as Jewish, feminist, and lesbian.

A Question of Emphasis: Louise Fishman Drawing is the first career spanning exhibition and publication of Fishman’s works on paper from 1964 to the present. The project includes more than 100 works from the artist’s archive that have rarely been exhibited alongside significant institutional and private loans.

Curated by Amy L. Powell, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Krannert Art Museum
