Specialists Speak: Women Art Dealers on Feminist Artists

Monday, April 9th, 2018

In honour of International Women’s Day last month, Invaluable invited seven members of AWAD to choose their favourite artists whose work addresses issues of feminism.

Georgina Bexon, International Advisor on Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art, and member of our London Chapter, chose Mithy Sen:

Born in West Bengal and now living and working in New Delhi, for more than two decades Mithy Sen has been at the forefront of a generation of contemporary female artists questioning and negotiating feminist issues in South Asia. Sen’s work moves with ease, and spontaneously, between genres – drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, performance, installation, video, (not to mention that she is also a poet) and it is our loss that her name is not better known in the West. She enjoys wide visibility in India, and also has a growing international profile with solo exhibitions and residencies in London, Berlin, Vienna, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Tokyo.

Other members who took part include:

JoAnne Artman

Geneviève Lévesque

Galia Kirilova

Joanna Bryant

Kristina Huntington

Susan Mumford

Marine Tanguy

AWAD and the National Museum of Women in the Arts: Mayfair gallery tour

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

In collaboration with the UK Friends of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and to celebrate Women’s History Month, AWAD members were invited to attend a special evening visit to Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac and Richard Saltoun in London.

We started with a tour of the exhibition ‘Vice Versa’ by Sturtevant given by the curator Julia Peyton-Jones at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac. The exhibition is the first posthumous London showing of the artist and the most recent in the UK since 2013. Featuring her iconic paintings, photographs, installation, video and wallpaper, it showcases why Sturtevant is acknowledged as one of the most important artists of the 21st century. Curated by Peyton-Jones in dialogue with Sturtevant’s daughter, Loren Muzzey, the exhibition consisted of works from the Estate and private collections.

The evening concluded at the Richard Saltoun gallery to visit ‘Women Look At Women’, an exhibition which explores feminine identity through the work of thirteen internationally renowned female artists. The works reflect a different aspect of the relationship women have with their own bodies and how they respond to other women. It is an exciting exhibition for Richard Saltoun, as it is the first in their new gallery space on Dover Street.

Vice Versa‘ is on at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac until 4th April.

AWAD at VOLTA NY 2018

Friday, March 30th, 2018

AWAD collaborated with Accola Griefen Fine Art, whose co-founders Kat Griefen and Kristen Accola are Founding Members of our NYC Chapter, for an event at this year’s VOLTA NY art fair.

The tour for members started with a viewing of the Maria Hupfield piece on the VOLTA video wall, followed by a stop at the Nancy Margolis Gallery to see oil on panel pieces by still life and figurative painter Aubrey Levinthal. Kat and Kristen then provided a talk and Q&A with the artist Judy Pfaff at their gallery’s stand. The tour concluded at the Kopeikin Gallery, where Katrin Korfmann gave insight into her bird’s eye view photographic pieces.

In mind of the pervading under-representation of female artists, yet with so much talent, we invite you to research these artists and follow their activities online. Name recognition, in combination with spreading the word to others, is key to propel women into the spotlight. As the saying goes, knowledge is power.
