Navigating the Art World as a Woman

  • The AllBright, 11 Rathbone Place London, W1T 1HR United Kingdom (map)


Join the Allbright Club for an intimate conversation between artist Anna Liber Lewis, curator and director of The Ingram Collection, Jo Baring, Head Curator of Elephant West, Becca Pelly-Fry and AllBright Curator, Beth Greenacre. 

Female artists remain under-represented in the art world despite outnumbering men studying in art school; London’s major institutions and commercial galleries remain the least likely to hold solo shows by female artists; in 2017 just 22% of solo shows presented by major London non-commercial galleries were by women artists, a decrease since 2016. Beyond the statistics, women artists, curators and professionals face unique challenges.

Join the Allbright Club for an intimate and honest conversation about being a woman in the art world and how one creates strength through collaboration and friendship. The event coincides with Anna Liber Lewis’ first major solo exhibition at Elephant West; Liber-Lewis graduated from The RCA in 2015, in 2017 she won the Griffin Art Prize and the Young Contemporary Talent Prize supported by The Ingram Collection.  

Liber Lewis’ practice is both intuitive and instinctive; the paintings are at once about the physical body and an internal landscape. They balance personal, sensual and complex narratives with courageous and often confrontational imagery.

A brand new print will be available to guests at the very special price of £90 on the night.

The Merit Club members receive exclusive access.

Date:  Monday 4th March, 6.30pm - 7.30pm

Location: The AllBright, 11 Rathbone Place, London, W1T 1HR United Kingdom
