"Let’s Hear it for The Girls! Leading Contemporary Female Artists from Britain who should be Household Names"


The international art scene has finally woken up to address the historical imbalances which have kept female artists far too long in the shadows. Art historian Linda Nochlin’s seminal 1971 essay, ironically titled "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?" promised to be a transformative moment in art history, but male artists continued to dominate the narrative. Roll forward five decades and female artists are finally being given the attention and respect they richly deserve…


In her lecture, "Let’s Hear it for The Girls", Cindy Polemis looks at some of the leading female artists working today who should be household names.


Lecturer: Cindy Polemis

Location: Stabi, Von-Melle-Park 3
