Moore College of Art & Design is the first and only visual arts college for women in the United States. The Galleries at Moore have showcased the work of women artists (e.g. the Guerrilla Girls, Adrian Piper) and curators (Lucy Lippard) to great effect, but in the context of an exhibition program that is largely gender-blind and international. (It has, for example, also presented important exhibitions by Matt Mullican, Öyvind Fahlström, and Dieter Roth, among others.) With grant support from the Center, the Galleries have organized scholarly surveys on the work of Artur Barrio (Brazil), Valie Export (Austria), Raymond Hains (France), and Jörg Immendorff (Germany). It most current project undertaken with Center support is an investigation of artist-run spaces in Mexico City in the 1990s.
