Event, Exhibit : Designing Modern Women, 1890–1990

This installation, drawn entirely from MoMA's collection, celebrates the diversity and vitality of individual artists' engagement in the modern world, from Loïe Fuller's pulsating turn-of-the-century performances to Paula Scher's deconstructivist graphics of the 1990s.
