Robert at Museum of Art and Design, 2 Columbus Circle

Curator Jennifer Scanlan will host brunch at Robert at the Museum of Art and Design, followed by a tour of her recent exhibit Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft and Design. The exhibition considers the important contributions of women to modernism in postwar visual culture. In the 1950s and 60s, an era when painting, sculpture, and architecture were dominated by men, women had considerable impact in alternative materials such as textiles, ceramics, and metals. Largely unexamined in major art historical surveys, either due to their gender or choice of materials, these pioneering women achieved success and international recognition, laying the ground for the feminist movement that followed.
