Here’s an exhibition we wish we were over the Atlantic for. Pulling in bits and pieces from their very own collection, the Museum of Modern Art has just opened a brand new show celebrating women in contemporary design from the years 1890 all the way up until 1990. The exhibition gives women in modern design the nod they deserve by crediting them not only as muses and wives, but as designers, performers and educators, listing creatives from Charlotte Perriand and Ray Eames to Eileen Gray and Denise Scott Brown on the bill.
For the moment, a collection of graphic design considers imagery of the New Woman through a series of posters made between 1890 and 1938, and come April, the focus of the exhibition will change slightly to consider Women at War, examining the role of women during the First World War. Girl power.
