Three dozen women artists explore images of the female body in a cross-generational exhibition, “No Man’s Land: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection,” coming to the National Museum of Women in the Arts this fall.

Organized by the Rubell Family Collection, one of the world’s largest privately-owned contemporary art collections, the exhibit features sculptures and paintings of artists from 15 countries, including Karin Davie, Mickalene Thomas, Isa Genzken, Yayoi Kusama, Solange Pessoa and Mira Dancy. It will open Sept. 30.

“In ‘No Man’s Land,’ large-scale paintings and sculptural hybrids reveal the expressive range of contemporary women artists and the expansive vision of the collectors who champion them,” NMWA Director Susan Fisher Sterling said in a statement announcing the exhibit.

“No Man’s Land” opened at the RFC’s larger space in Miami in December and it continues there through May 28. The NMWA curators worked with Juan Roselione-Valadez, director of the RFC, to develop a more tightly-focused and smaller show for their space, where it will run through Jan. 8, 2017.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts is at 1250 New York Ave. NW. It is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
