Artereal Gallery presents Nevertheless, she persisted – a group exhibition addressing issues around female visibility / invisibility in the art world by showcasing the work of ten unrepresented artists identifying as female or non-binary.
‘Nevertheless, she persisted’ is a concerted effort on the part of Artereal Gallery to bring issues surrounding the need for equal gender representation in the art world to the fore. It represents an attempt to participate in an important ongoing dialogue and recognises the responsibility of commercial galleries in affecting change and redressing the gender imbalance which has historically existed within the commercial gallery sector.
Featuring work by: Grace Blake, Sabella D’Souza, Leila El Rayes, Brooke Leigh, Eugenia Lim, Cat Mueller, Claudia Nicholson, Ebony Russell, Georgia Saxelby and Naomi Segal.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Wednesday 6 February 2019
