Both exhibitions are associated with MoMA’s publication Modern Women: Women Artists at The Museum of Modern Art. The Raincoats, formed by Ana da Silva and Gina Birch in the late 1970s, created a sound, inspired by punk and rock music, that became a significant source of inspiration for future of generations of feminist musicians.
