Female Futures

Inspired by ‘Representation of Female Artists in Britain’, an annual research paper conducted by the Freelands Foundation, Female Futures asks panelists to reflect on the future for female artists.

How much has the art world changed since the Great East London Art Audit in 2012? What will it look like for today’s graduates in five years’ time? Will the current enthusiasm for collecting art by female artists have a long-term impact on the industry? What other groups in the art world are at risk of being overlooked?  

Female Futures will be chaired by Marcelle Joseph, curator and collector of female artists, joined by Melanie Cassoff, the Managing Director of the Freelands Foundation, Alexandra Warder, the Co-Director of Bosse and Baum, and Emma Fineman, FBA Futures exhibitor.

 

This event is part of FBA Futures 2019, the UK's biggest annual survey of emerging contemporary figurative art, mapping new practices and ideas of representation and draughtsmanship.
