‘Women Behind Art’ Panel Discussion at Housman’s Bookshop

ArtsFems are hosting a FREE panel discussion titled Women Behind Art at Housman’s bookshop

Housman’s, Caledonian Road, King’s Cross, N1 9DX

Wednesday 19th March, 7pm.

Open to all.

Press Release:

‘Women Behind Art’ is a panel discussion hosted by ArtsFems, the Feminist Society at University of the Arts London. The aim of the discussion will be to address questions of women’s representation and experiences in the art world. Four women speakers who work within the creative industries as creative project leaders, curators or journalists will discuss and compare the challenges they face, and the joys they receive from working within the art world as a woman.

ArtsFems were inspired to develop this event in response to East London Fawcett’s recent Art Audit, which brought to light the poor underrepresentation of women artists in galleries. ArtsFems wanted to look behind the art and develop a discourse about the future of women’s work in this area.

Speaking are Rachael House, co-curator and director of Space Station Sixty-Five in South London; Rosa Bennathan, co-editor of Bad Housekeeping, a feminist online magazine; Rosalind Davis, curator and co-founder of Zeitgeist Arts Projects, designed to support ambitious artists; and Carol Swords, curator at the PM Gallery and House, Ealing.

The discussion will be opened up to the floor to enable you to ask questions to the panel and voice your own opinions.
