Moderator: Charlotte Burns, Founder, Studio Burns, London

According to The Art Market 2023 report published by Art Basel and UBS, the share of female artists represented by galleries has risen steadily over the last few years. Yet, the market continues to significantly undervalue their work. What barriers still need to be overcome for women and other underrepresented groups to reach parity in the open market? Is there a difference between marketability and institutional visibility? Gallerist Amrita Jhaveri, curator Kate Fowle, and economists Clare McAndrew and Sophie Perceval come together with Charlotte Burns to cut through the buzz of the ‘ultra-contemporary’, and narratives around the rediscovery of ‘overlooked’ female artists, to discuss what progress is still to be made.

Conversations take place in the Auditorium, Hall 1 ground floor. They are free and open to the public, booking is recommended see above. Doors will open 10 min before the event.
All Conversations will also be livestreamed on our Facebook channel with closed captions. A recording will be available on our website and youtube channel after the event.
