Jeffrey Gibson, born in 1972 in Colorado, is a featured artist in the inaugural presentation of Desert X, the international art biennial in the Coachella Valley. He is repurposing a decommissioned blade from a windmill that will be installed to rise out of the museum’s lower-level sculpture garden. The blade will be 52 feet tall and painted to contain the phrases “We are living!” “I am alive,” “You are alive,” and “They are alive.”

This exhibition presents the work of twelve American women artists active in New York City and the San Francisco Bay area in the late 1940s and 1950s. As part of a circle of painters known as Abstract Expressionists, they helped forge the first fully American modern art movement. Though women actively participated alongside men in the studios, clubs, and exhibitions, textbook accounts of the movement tell the story through the work of a handful of male artists.

Modern America can be understood through the rich visual cultures that emerged from two co-existing perspectives. In the 1950s and 1960s many Americans yearned for a simpler time and looked to the ideals and traditions of the American West, following the hardships of World War II. At the same time others gazed toward a future buoyed by technology and economic growth.
