Goldschmied & Chiari
National Museum of Women in the Arts at MiArt 2015

The participation of the National Museum of Women in the Arts at MiArt 2015 represented by its Italian delegation, was organized by Nicoletta Rusconi Art Projects thanks to the generous contribution of Vhernier, Italian brand of the finest high-end artisan jewelry design.
The NMWA is "the only institution in the world dedicated to the recognition of women’s artistic achievements and contributions of all periods and nationalities, through the exhibition, conservation, acquisition, research and education on women's art", so Mrs. Wilhelmina Cole Holladay, founder of the museum in 1987. The exhibition series "Women to Watch" is developed every two or three years in collaboration with NMWA’s national and international committees, to increase the visibility of artists who are working in innovative ways within a variety of creative communities.

Organic Matters, curated by Virginia Trenor, was the theme of Women to Watch 2015. Depictions of nature can illuminate themes of sexuality, gender politics, the abject, and the sublime. The artists whose work was featured in the exhibition at the museum on behalf of the Italian committee Gli Amici del NMWA for the 2015 edition were Goldschmied e Chiari, nominated by Iolanda Ratti, curator of Milan’s Museo del Novecento. MiArt 2015 was an occasion to present the work of the NMWA and the association of the friends of the museum to a wider audience and to show Goldschmied and Chiari’s work Medusa Mirrors (digital print on mirror, cm 135x225).
