Parall(elles) A History of Women in Design at Musée des Beaux-Arts Montréal

As is my custom these past couple weeks, I went to see a design exhibit in the last few days of its run. The previous was W.E.B. Dubois at The Cooper Hewitt in New York City. This time it was a women in design exhibit at Montréal’s Musée des Beaux Arts—Parall(Elles).

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.
