Women in Today’s Art World: A Call to Action

In celebration of the sixth year of the Norton’s RAW (Recognition of Art by Women) series, be part of a community conversation about the present and future of women in the art world. Where do women stand today and how can women act together to strive for gender parity in our current political, cultural, and economic climate?  Where are the opportunities to act? What are the unique responsibilities of galleries, museums, scholars, artists, and arts advocates? What other questions and perspectives are critical in this discourse? This lively conversation is free, takes place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 19, 2017, and will feature a remarkable panel of dynamic individuals, each sharing a unique and valuable perspective.  Panelists include:

  • Kimberly Drew (a.k.a. @museummammy), is Social Media Manager at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Drew, who will serve as panel moderator, has lectured and participated on panels at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Art Basel Miami Beach, Moogfest, The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and Brooklyn Museum of Art.
     
  • Susan Fisher Sterling is the Director and Chief Curator of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
     
  • The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous collective of artist-activists promoting gender and racial equality. A member of the group is participating.
     
  • Alexander Gray is the owner and principal of Alexander Gray Associates, a contemporary art gallery in New York that is known for advocating for equality in representation and support of artists. 

An after party follows the panel discussion where you can toast the arts, equality, and the power of community! 

RSVP for the After Party is requested.
