The Smart List is a monthly list of multi-media recommendations on everything design, curated by Interwoven Design. In this issue we share the virtual events we have on our calendars for 2022. We love to have a mix of virtual and in-person events in play, and there are more available now than ever. The virtual events are available to a wide-range of attendees, and anyone interested can join, no matter where they are in the world. While some require registering to reserve a space, these events are free to the public.

What’s a Feminist Picture? MoMA Lecture
This lecture and panel discussion is offered in MoMA’s wonderful virtual programming. This will be one of their Forums on Contemporary Photography, a loose platform for free-form critical discussions about photography today. The discussion is paired with a new photography exhibit that is “an invitation to look at pictures through a contemporary feminist lens; it affirms the capacity of artists to assert their political motivations and proposes unexpected connections that mount a challenge to convention.”
