Despite encouraging statistics showing a gradual rise in the number of women artists showing in galleries, we are by no means near achieving equality.
The art establishment in Britain is a hostile environment for underrepresented artists. Despite encouraging statistics showing a gradual rise in the number of women artists showing in galleries, we are by no means near achieving equality. This panel seeks to tackle some of the issues that women and other underrepresented artists face, and discuss what we can do to drive change. Should we accept compromises with the current establishment or fight for a complete overhaul? Should we push for change through our art, or does that merely marginalize us further? And how would an egalitarian art establishment look to us? What do we actually want to achieve?
Come and join the debate and help affect change...
