Advocating for equal representation of women in the arts, this talk will feature leading female artists sharing the unique experiences of their career and stereotypes attached to being a woman in art. Women are forgotten by art history and major institutions have failed to support the careers of women artists working on the margins and often only support women artists in a performative manner and for publicity purposes. This conversation seeks to address the need for more institutions and role models nurturing women artists from a young age and the need to discover women doing innovative work and to work towards greater diverse gender representation in the art industry.
