Title: The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bochoráková-Dittrichová
Curator: Heather Slania
Abstract: Helena Bochoráková-Dittrichová (1894–1980) was a Czech graphic artist whose 1929 novel Z me´ho de?tstvi´ (From My Childhood) is widely acknowledged to be the first wordless novel created by a woman. Bochoráková-Dittrichová’s appealing and warm woodcut style was influenced by pioneering Belgian graphic artist Frans Masereel. This exhibition showcases five of her published novels as well as her unpublished book Malírka Na Cesta´ch (The Artist on her Journey), which contains 52 original woodcuts about a young woman artist studying abroad, mirroring Bochoráková-Dittrichová’s own life at the beginning of her career.

Equal Exposure: Anita Steckel’s Fight Against Censorship (Exhibition)
Title: Equal Exposure: Anita Steckel’s Fight Against Censorship
Curator: Heather Slania
Abstract: Anita Steckel (1930–2012), a feminist American artist, countered the art-world establishment through depictions of heterosexual female desire. She sparked a media scandal in 1972 by refusing to self-censor an exhibition of her exuberant and shameless female and male erotic figures, instead creating the Fight Censorship Group. Personal papers, photographs, and art from the Betty Boyd Dettre Library and Research Center’s Anita Steckel Papers illustrate her boundary-pushing art and activism.

Making Her Mark: Publishers’ Bindings by Women (Exhibition)
Title: Making Her Mark: Publishers’ Bindings by Women
Curator: Heather Slania
Abstract: In the 19th century, book publishers developed new bookbinding methods to respond to the desires of an increasingly educated general public. One of these shifts was using cloth to bind books instead of the more expensive leather and the less resilient paper bindings. This provided an avenue for women artists to make their mark on bookbinding design, and soon, they became some of the most successful designers.
