MoMA's Modern Women

The key line in the introductory wall text at the Museum of Modern Art’s new installation, “Designing Modern Women, 1890-1990” is this: “The objects, design drawings, posters, and films on view in this gallery, all drawn from the Museum’s collection, showcase women’s creativity not only as professional designers, but also as clients, consumers performers, and educators.” This redefinition of the limits of design practice is long overdue.
