Representation for female artists in Britain
When: March 8 2021
Where: London, United Kingdom
Dr Kate McMillan, Lecturer in Contemporary Arts at King's College London, will be joined by Maggie Ayliffe, Head of Wolverhampton School of Art and Laura Onions, lecturer in Fine Art also at Wolverhampton School of Art. The talk will be followed by a Q& A session.
Dr Kate McMillan, artist and author of the annual Freelands Report, 'Representation for Female Artists in Britain' will consider this research and other work she is doing to understand why progress for female artists in Britain is so slow. She will argue that Art Schools are a vital breeding ground for activism and must continue to empower young artists to set the agenda for change. McMillan asks whether collaborative, creative, community, placed-based models of care, so often championed by women, can offer solutions for the future.
