The Art Workers’ Coalition (AWC) was a group of activists who came together in New York in 1969 to promote artists’ rights and to challenge the art establishment into implementing various reforms.

The group included artists, filmmakers, writers, critics, and museum staff. Its principal aim was to pressure the city’s museums into ending discrimination and inequality in exhibition policy, ensuring that more women and black artists were represented.

The group included artists Carl Andre, Robert Smithson, Hans Haacke and writer and curator Lucy Lippard.
