East London Fawcett announce Art Audit Results


East London Fawcett unveiled their findings of their year-long campaign to examine the position of women with the arts in contemporary London.

The audit which looked at works from April 2012 – April 2013 gathered data on 134 commercial galleries in London, which collectively represent 3,163 artists. Gathered by a large group of dedicated volunteers, including a number of experienced researchers and statisticians, these figures will hopefully provide an objective basis for future discourse on women in the arts, and prompt further investigation of the area.

Check out the data and findings on the ELF website and the Guardian Datablog. The Guardian also analysed the results in this article “Women in Art: Why are all the Great Artists Men”
