How wide the view?

May 24, 2012

Underrepresentation of women in engineering is a known fact. Most of us do not realise the same applies to modern art. The figures are staggering. Of twelve prestigious Gagosian galleries, this year solely one will exhibit the works by women. But not only commercial galleries are gender biased. In the Museum of Modern Art (the famous MoMA), merely 3% of artefacts were created by females. Guess what gender 83% of their nudes are?

Some argue art it is not about numbers, but about widening the field of view. The question poses: How wide the view, when females are not given a chance to experience expressions of their gender. Above you can experience the Gold Tip by Marilyn Minter.
