As its name suggests, ‘Benchmarks: Seven Women in Design’ is a unique exhibition which explores a ‘benchmark’ phenomenon of women making their mark in the world of graphic design.
The exhibition is being shown at the Center Gallery at Fordham University Lincoln Centre in New York until August 15 2011.
This refreshingly progressive exposition includes the work of Louise Fili, Paula Scher, Eileen Boxer, Lucille Tenazas, Gail Anderson, Carin Goldberg and Elaine Lustig Cohen, and explores the graphic designers’ illustrious and prominent careers.
This unique portrayal of women in what has traditionally been considered a male-led industry began as a senior project in Abby Goldstein’s graphic design class, has been curated by Goldstein alongside Lindsay Reichart, an art history major.
