What You Need to Know: On view through November 18, 2023, Berry Campbell is presenting “Judith Godwin: Modern Woman,” a monographic exhibition delving into the work and practice of the overlooked Abstract Expressionist. Featuring 23 paintings and works on paper dating from between 1954 and 1959, many of the pieces on view have not been seen by the public in more than sixty years. Accompanying the exhibition is an 96-page illustrated monographic publication, with a primary text by editor of the Woman’s Art Journal Aliza Edelman, and contributions by Denver Art Museum Curator Emerita Gwen Chanzit and former Artforum publisher Anthony Korner. The exhibition coincides with the 10-year anniversary of Berry Campbell, highlighting the gallery’s program of promoting post-war American art and artists—and drawing attention artists who have been historically under-appreciated due to their age, race, gender, or location.
