A landmark year-long online seminar series, Observations, examines the contributions of women to art and design history. The Observations program will be offered as online seminar streams delivered throughout 2022, accompanied by live events. The NGV-curated series features leading historians, writers and curators from around the world. Experts will explore the work of some of the most significant women in art and design; and the contexts, frameworks and networks that both supported and challenged their respective practices.

Modern Art & Design Innovators: 1930-1970, examines the rapidly shifting times of the mid-century, in particular, the women artists and designers who reimagined modernism and exported their radical new ideas across the world. Highlighting the work of artists Helen Frankenthaler, Eva Hesse and Lee Krasner and designers Eva Zeisel, Charlotte Perriand and Ray Eames, this series will connect audiences directly with industry specialists including Elizabeth Smith, Executive Director of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation; Juliet Kinchin, emeritus Curator of Modern Design, MoMA and Adjunct Professor at New York’s Bard Graduate Center; and cultural historian Phyllis Teo, who will spotlight the work of Modernist women artists in China.
