Program Description

In certain areas of the design world—interiors, textiles and tableware—women have been extremely successful. In others—namely furniture and product design—they have been conspicuously absent. This round table takes a look at the past, present and future of women in design. Curators and designers examine why women continue to make up such a small segment of sectors of industrial design, and debate whether the immediate future promises any change. 

Speakers include: Bec Brittain, Designer; Josephine Heilpern, Designer and Founder of Recreation Center; Rachel Howe, Designer and Founder of Small Spells; and Katie Stout, Designer.  The discussion will be led by Elissa Auther; Windgate Research Curator, Museum of Arts and Design & Bard Graduate Center with Barbara Gifford, Curatorial Assistant and Project Manager, Museum of Arts and Design.
