Women’s Center for Creative Work
For the second year of the contemporary art initiative /five, The Huntington is partnering with the Women’s Center for Creative Work (WCCW) to select six artists who will create new works investigating the theme of collecting and collections. The six artists will conduct research across the Huntington’s art, botanical, and library holdings, and then create artworks that respond to the collections and provide engaging, thoughtful, provocative, and inspiring experiences for Huntington audiences. The artworks could take any number of forms including site-specific installations, readings, events, podcasts, performance, or media-based works. The results of this collaboration will be announced throughout the year and will culminate in an exhibition in fall 2017.
Founded in 2013, WCCW is a Los Angeles–based nonprofit organization that cultivates feminist creative communities and practices through its facilities, residency programs, and rapidly growing network of over 15,000 followers.
