“Rebel/Re-Belle: Exploring Gender, Agency, and Identity | Selections from the Asheville Art Museum and Rubell Museum” combines works, primarily created by women, from two significant collections of contemporary art to explore how artists have innovated, influenced, interrogated, and inspired visual culture in the past 100 years.

According to Assistant Curator Hilary Schroeder, “expressions of identity are at the core of many artists’ work, and artists have long used colors, imagery, gestures, and media to tell their stories and share their points of view. The 20th and 21st centuries are defined by movements to uplift the voices of the otherwise silenced and give agency to authentic expression.”
