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
