The East London Fawcett’s (ELF) art audit of more than 100 commercial galleries in London, which collectively represent 3,163 artists, found that only 5% represent an equal number of male and female artists. Here are some more of their art world statistics -

Gemma Rolls-Bentley, arts director at ELF, said that the audit’s message was one of optimism, “The ELF art audit results provide statistical evidence that gender inequality still persists in London’s art world. However, these results also demonstrate that significant positive progress has and is being made.”

We have some fantastic female artists at artrepublic and are committed to supporting all great artists regardless of gender. If you’re looking to get your work represented check out how to submit your art here.
