GREAT EAST LONDON ART AUDIT
The mission of the Great East London Art Audit is to demonstrate and challenge the gender inequality that exists in London’s galleries and museums.
We invite you to join our campaign to calculate the ratio of male to female artists currently being exhibited in East London and further afield.
