Developing a project for promotion of female artists ,
This conversation is closed.
Female artists in general have been largely ignored and unrepresented in most, if not all, major art galleries. They have less exposure and less chance for exposure.
They have been ignored by the art world for centuries. If you look through history of art, it is a story of men. Nowadays, it still depends on the country. In the UK not all is lost. However, in other countries they should redress the balance between men and women. Including the US, where women artists on exposure are only 5% of all artists. Of course, we have Barbara Kruger. But what about the others? There are so many great undiscovered female artists. Why do you think it is still like that? What do you think about developing a website for promoting female artists, social network/search engine with a donation page? What do you think can be done more about it, in order to fundamentally change not only situation of women in art world, but in society?
