This exhibition showcases graphic communication by Central Saint Martins’ female alumni and staff over the past century. Client commissioned work is included along research projects, showing graphic communication as an accessible subject and an area of intellectual enquiry.

About

Work by established practitioners such as Morag Myerscough, Astrid Stavro, Luciene Roberts and Sara De Bondt is shown together with earlier 20th century pieces by designers like Heather 'Herry' Perry, Dora Batty and Kathleen Hale. The exhibition also features work from many emerging designers, and over 50 practitioners are included.

Why women? Gender representation in the historical and contemporary graphic arena does not reflect the large numbers of women studying the subject who go on to enter the profession, or the contribution women have made to the discipline's history. This exhibition aims to be part of the growing movement to redress this.

Many pieces on show are from the CSM Museum and Study Collection
