Catalog published by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts accompanying the exhibition of the same name, organized in collaboration with the Stewart Program for Modern Design

This major exhibition celebrates the instrumental role women have played in the world of design through a rich corpus of art works and objects dating from the mid-19th century onwards. In addition, it examines the reasons why women are underrepresented in the history of this discipline and encourages an expanded understanding of what constitutes design.

Packaged in a plexiglas cover that comes in pink or orange, this book features an essay by Jennifer Laurent, Curator of Decorative Arts and Design at the MMFA, that offers an enlightening account of the history of women in the design industry, as well as 70 images of artworks and objects. The catalogue’s graphic design was realized by Charlie Proulx.
