Women in Art & Design

Course starts 27 Jan | Register your interest to be notified when enrolments open. Women have always made art, but for centuries formal recognition of their work has been hampered by social, cultural and economic structures. Today, there is growing interest in the contribution of women artists, including redressing historical collections to include important and lesser known artists from key periods in art history as well as the critical role of contemporary artists and designers. Learn about the unique contributions of women to the art world through historical and contemporary art and design from Europe, North America, Asia and Australia in the NGV Collection.
