Relegated for too long to the sidelines of art history, women artists have been integral to the story of modern art. In this new series from Curious Minds favourite Barbara Isherwood (The Great Photographers, The Art of Picasso), we will explore—and celebrate—the achievements of those determined women who surmounted numerous obstacles to realize their creative visions.

From the soaring artworks of cultural icons like Georgia O'Keeffe, Emily Carr, Frida Kahlo and Yoko Ono, to the rich contributions of previously under-recognized artists whose legacies are finally being acknowledged, prepare to be amazed! Meet the inspiring women who made modern art.

This series is led by art critic and art historian Barbara Isherwood, the host of ArtSync TV and a frequent lecturer at the School of Continuing Studies, University of Toronto. An energetic educator who brings infectious passion and clear-eyed analysis to history’s greatest artworks, Barbara has led the popular Curious Minds courses The Art of Picasso, The Great Old Masters, The Great Photographers and The Art of Living: The History of Interior Design.

Course Registration: $69 (Hot Docs Members: $60, $48, Free)
