Doing Women Artists’ Art Week London

If you haven’t yet heard of Women Artists’ Art Week (WAAW), you soon will. The new London-based initiative is on a mission to advance gender equality in the art world by encouraging galleries and institutions to showcase only female artists for one week.

Taking part in the inaugural edition this June are blue-chip galleries such as Saatchi Yates, Gazelli Art House and Alison Jacques, as well as major cultural institutions, including the Serpentine Galleries, Somerset House and Sarabande Foundation.

The latter presents The Demons Show, which brings together the work of eight artists who explore the role of female/non-binary mythical creatures in relation to gender identity within feminist contexts. Other events for your radar include a breakfast talk at Karnik Gallery on 13th June and a curator’s tour of Cromwell Place on 15th June. What’s not to love?
