This panel discussion, from 2017, brings together distinguished and knowledgeable curators, activists, artists and scholars in a discussion exploring the historical lack of representation of women artists in museum collections, especially in the field of sculpture. In a conversation intended to bring broader public awareness to this issue, panelists discuss the variety of factors that contribute to the underrepresentation of women’s works and how museums and collectors might develop more equitable and diverse collections.

Nasher Sculpture Center
Open since 2003 and located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, the Nasher Sculpture Center is home to one of the finest collections of modern and contemporary sculptures in the world, the Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, featuring more than 300 masterpieces by Calder, de Kooning, di Suvero, Giacometti, Hepworth, Kelly, Matisse, Miró, Moore, Picasso, Rodin, Serra and more. The longtime dream of the late Raymond and Patsy Nasher, the museum was designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano in collaboration with landscape architect Peter Walker. The Nasher Sculpture Center presents rotating exhibitions of works from the Nasher family collection as well as special exhibitions drawn from other museums and private collections. In addition to indoor gallery space, the Center contains an auditorium, education and research facilities, a cafe and a store.
