Women in art

To celebrate the International Women’s day the Rijksmuseum organised a conference ” Women in Art”. I attended this day, which enabled me to learn about the vision of others on women in art (visiability, storytelling, remuneration) and get in touch with others who share the interested of the position of women in the art industry.

Although focused on the presence of women’s art in musea it helped me to understand how choices are made and what strategies are applied within musea to come to a collection. It also made me realise how needed increased visibility and a spotlight are required to bring this topic forward and increase awareness in order to change the system.

Wording, in how exhibitions are marketed and signing next to artworks, are critical in changing and framing the position of women in art. For this I will have to carefully consider the story and how I want to tell the story of the paygap. Will I stress it or leave the conclusion to the audience?  

The picture shows the Museum of Fine art in Buenos Aires, Argentina, highlighting women’s art for an hour a day during a month, leaving the man’s art in the dark.
