Featuring work by twenty-one artists born between 1891 and 1981, Magnetic Fields places abstract works by multiple generations of black women artists in context with one another—and within the larger history of abstract art—for the first time. Evocative prints, unconventional sculptures, and monumental paintings reveal the artists’ role as unrecognized leaders in abstraction.
