NYC exhibitions. Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft and Design, Midcentury and Today. In the 1950s and 60s, when the worlds of art and design were dominated by men, women such as Sheila Hicks, Eva Zeisel and Ruth Asawa challenged the status quo with innovative works in textiles, ceramics and metal. Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft, and Design, Midcentury and Today demonstrates the important contributions of women to modernism in postwar visual culture. Their legacy today is reflected in the work of contemporary artists and designers such as Hella Jongerius, Michelle Grabner and Polly Apfelbaum.
