Mira Schor is one of the foremost feminist painters of the past fifty years. Operating in the nexus of language, painting, and feminist theory, Schor has continually imbued formalism with political urgency, and reminded viewers that written discourse and physical form are inherently linked. 

Schor received her MFA from CalArts where she was a member of the CalArts Feminist Art Program and a participant in the historic feminist art installation Womanhouse. She is the author of Wet: On Painting, Feminism, and Art Culture and A Decade of Negative Thinking: Essays on Art, Politics, and Daily Life, andwas co-editor with fellow painter Susan Bee of the journal M/E/A/N/I/N/G and M/E/A/N/I/N/G: An Anthology of Artists’ Writings, Theory, and Criticism. Schor is the recipient of awards in painting from the Guggenheim, Marie Walsh Sharpe, and Pollock-Krasner Foundations, as well as the College Art Association’s Frank Jewett Mather Award for Art Criticism. She is a recipient of the 2019 Women’s Caucus for Art Lifetime Achievement Award for her work as a feminist painter, art historian and critic and of a 2022 Anonymous Was A Woman Award. 2017 she was elected to the National Academy of Design. Schor is represented by Lyles & King in New York and Marcelle Alix in Paris. She spends her summers in Provincetown.
