As the U.S. election approaches, feminism takes center stage at scores of art institutions across the country.

Major monographic exhibitions of work by women will be offered at wide-ranging institutions — Alison Saar presented jointly at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena and the Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College in Claremont, Calif.; Lorraine O’Grady at the Brooklyn Museum; Hannah Wilke at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis; Shahzia Sikander at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum in Providence; Deana Lawson at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston; and Diana Al-Hadid at the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington in Seattle (which is dedicating its entire gallery footprint for the second half of this year to shows conceived under the Feminist Art Coalition banner).
