FEB 24 Gallery Talk: Pathmakers

Kick back, relax, and enjoy design! 

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA’s collection with museum staff.

This week, Chief Curator Kathryn Wat discusses several works in the special exhibition Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft, and Design, Midcentury and Today.


ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

This exhibition illuminates the vital contributions of women to postwar visual culture and their use of craft materials—especially clay, fiber, and metals—to explore concepts of Modernism. Featuring more than 80 works, Pathmakers focuses on women working at mid-century, as well as contemporary artists whose work reflects the influence of their predecessors.
