Joan Snyder is the recipient of National Endowment for the Arts, Guggenheim, and MacArthur Fellowships. Her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions throughout the U.S. and is represented in many public and private collections. Although Joan Snyder’s paintings are often placed under various art-movement umbrellas — Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Expressionism, and Feminist Art — the changing nature of her work, with its combination of personal iconography, female imagery, aggressive brushstroke and accomplished formalism, has kept her steadily untagged.
Marilyn Symmes, curator and director of the Morse Research Center for Graphic Arts at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University, has authored many publications on American prints and drawings. In 2011, she organized Dancing with the Dark: Joan Snyder Prints 1963-2010, the artist’s first prints retrospective, for the Zimmerli; currently this show is traveling to venues in Boston and Richmond, Virginia. She also co-authored the exhibition’s stunning companion book about Snyder’s printmaking explorations of female sexuality, motherhood, mortality and outrage at injustice. Previously, Symmes has realized graphic arts exhibitions for the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Toledo Musum of Art and the Smithsonian’s Cooper- Hewitt
