Women artists worth 10% of men.

Women artists worth 10% of men. August 4 2022 Picture: via The Guardian In The Guardian, Mary Ann Sieghart reports that for every one pound a work by a male artist makes, a female artist makes just 10p. The figure comes from research by Helen Gorrill, for a BBC Radio 4 documentary, Recalculating Art. The Guardian story has this opinion - in my view completely correct - from the director of Tate Modern, Frances Morris: “Women artists have fared very poorly because there’s been an unconscious collusion between the marketplace, art history and the institutions. Everybody lacks confidence, everybody’s looking for confirmation. So there’s been a sort of confirmational history, which you could call the canon. And, of course, convention and history were framed by patriarchy." The Radio 4 documentary goes out on 11th August at 11.30. More here.
