10 Of NYC's Most Amazing Female Artists

It's officially art fair season, with the 12th edition of Frieze London taking place last week, and exhibitions rolling out in cities ranging from Toronto to Dubai over the next few months, culminating in the big art fest-slash-cultural who's-who-slash-party that is Art Basel Miami Beach in December. That makes it a great time for emerging artists to get their work in front of new audiences — and for you to discover a few new names to start obsessing over.
While one of the biggest shows for young artists — the Whitney Biennial — opened in New York this summer with a lackluster 30% women (the same percentage we saw back in 1987), it's actually a very exciting time for up-and-coming female artists. To celebrate, we highlighted 10 of our favorite New York-based talents and picked a favorite example of their work — you know, just in case you can't make it to Miami.
