SOHO20 is the number one organization in New York City providing women with exhibition and professional artistic opportunities. We are on the forefront of the contemporary art world, and we are redefining the meaning of feminism in art.
In 1973, SOHO20 was founded by a group of 20 women artists intent on achieving professional excellence in an industry where there was a gross lack of opportunities for women to succeed. Our mission remains to provide diverse exhibition opportunities for women artists; to present public programs including workshops, panels, lectures and screenings that generate and provide access to a productive art community; and to promote knowledge of women’s artistic contributions to the general public.
In the past 10 years we have expanded our programming to include a performance art series, an artist-in-residence studio program, a project space and a discussion series. These programs are open to artists across genders, because we believe that inclusive opportunity is a powerful tool for progressive action and dialogue to take place.
