Who are you going to see?

After an Open Call, 24 illustrators and photographers were selected from more than 150 submissions to participate in Women in Art 2024. From prize-winning photographers Tara Fallaux and Carla van de Puttelaar to illustrators Tabitha Boekweit and Jowy Maasdamme. A complete overview of all participants can be found at women-in-art.nl

The participants received master classes specially developed for them in collaboration with curator Maaike Rikhof and Laurien van der Werff (Women of the Rijksmuseum). She was then asked to create a diptych inspired by a woman who is or has been influential in art.

Exhibition

The diptychs will be presented for the first time during the festive opening on March 1. The exhibition takes place in the Passage, the public part of the Hallen in Amsterdam West, and can be visited free of charge until March 10. Participant and photographer Sacha de Boer also paid tribute to top Dutch female photographers. She portrayed, among others, Scarlett Hooft Graafland and Dana Lixenberg for this hall of fame.

Some of the artworks will be included in an outdoor traveling exhibition, which can be seen on Mercatorplein and in the Westerpark. This is curated by a group of women from West, who, together with Women in Art, want to make art accessible to a broader audience. The official opening on Mercatorplein will take place on International Women's Day, 8 March, at 17:00., with an introduction by district chairman Fenna Ulichki.

Need

The attention is desperately needed because female artists remain undervalued. This is evident from research by renowned institutions, including Oxford University and Erasmus University. For example, works of art by women fetch on average 42% less at auction than those of their male colleagues, and female artists earn on average one-third less annually than their male counterparts.
