Join us for an evening discussing the rise in representation of female-identifying artists in the UK as we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of East London Fawcett’s Art Audit, a year-long campaign that assessed female representation in London’s museums and galleries. We will hear from the authors of the Freelands Foundation’s 2015-2022 report which continued ELF’s research as we reflect on the changing landscape for women artists over the last decade.
