September 11, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
New Canaan Library is pleased to offer a special lecture through The Museum of Modern Art’s “MoMa@Work” series, whereby Museum educators and speakers present offsite talks at businesses and organizations. MoMA educator Molleen Theodore will deliver the talk Modern Women Artists in MoMA’s Collection on Tuesday, September 11 at 6:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public; please register to attend, online at newcanaanlibrary.org.
Ms. Theodore will cover many aspects of the topic, including how, throughout the history of Western art, the practice of singling out prominent female artists has undermined their artistic achievements. In this presentation, Theodore will explore works by modern women artists in MoMA’s collection who, with outstanding originality, nurtured, expanded, and challenged a male-dominated field.
