NY Times - "Women's Place in the Art World"
Human progress is hard fought. As this article illustrates in the NY Times, a survey by Artnet of major art museums across the country, such as The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, MOMA, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and others, is that the dollar value of art sales by women has increased significantly between 2008 & 2018, but the number of exhibitions by major women artists has pretty much remained flat.
When we look at the larger progress made by women in the U.S. & societies across the world, it's no surprise, I believe, that the number & stature of exhibitions would be any different. Not until parity is reached with men, politically, in the CEO towers, and in the everyday work force, will this change dramatically. I believe that the correlation is direct and unmistakable.
