We are tired of walking through museums and galleries thinking: Where are the women artists? Curators, art dealers, collectors, editors, directors, writers, teachers and everyone else who have been excluding us; HERE WE ARE.
This is an open directory and database for all women artists and art world professionals. A new project brought to you by ArtGirlRising. Together we increase visibility and opportunities for women in the artworld.
WE ARE HERE, WE WILL BE SEEN.
DID YOU KNOW:
Out of 18 prominent art museums in the U.S. with over 10,000 artists 87% are male, and 85% are white.
Just 8% of public art in central London was created by women.
Only 13.7% of living artists represented by galleries in Europe and North America are women
Of the hundred most expensive works ever sold, none are by a woman.
We believe by creating this platform we can help shift the numbers. There are no excuses.
WE ARE HERE. WE WILL BE SEEN.
