Women, 51% of the population, get less than their fair share of representation in the art world– between 2007 and 2013 only 27% of solo shows in the U.S. featured a female artist. less than half is the website that covers those shows.

Across time and space
less than half is “Face to Face” with not one but two great women: artist Chitra Ganesh and curator Beth Citron of the Rubin Museum. Join us as we talk museum interventions, animation, and public art on a scale you’ve never seen it before.
Lorna Simpson’s monumental show at Hauser & Wirth is cast in shadows of vibrant blue––a color with a rich and complicated history when it comes to the representation of race.
Milk and Bones
less than half is “Face to Face” with Allison Hill-Edgar, who knows bodies inside and out––she trained to be a doctor, after all. We’ll cover everything from her winding path towards becoming a painter to her unusual approach to painting her subjects submerged in milk.
Of staples and stitches
less than half is “Face to Face” with Elana Herzog who uses her work to tell the complex story of the history of the world through textiles, which have embedded within them more information than you might think.
Bloom & Bust
Though her flower paintings appear to be of the 21st century, Shara Hughes takes a cue from the Golden Age of Dutch painting, more specifically, the tradition of vanitas.
Maine on my mind
There is a special place in my heart for the coast of Maine, something Nancy Cohen and Susan English understand, as both their solo shows take inspiration from the great state and its rocky coastline.
