Seventy Percent of Artists….

Kate McM Chair

There’s been quite a media stir over Dr Kate McMillan’s report on the representation of female artists in the UK. Headline findings include that nearly 70 percent of artists represented by London’s top galleries are men.

It’s the latest in annual series of reports commissioned by the Freelands Foundation, which aims further to understand the role that gender plays in artists’ careers.

Dr McMillan is both an artist and an academic here at CMCI. You can read the whole report at: https://www.freelandsfoundation.co.uk/research/representation-of-female-artists-in-britain-2018
