In celebration of International Women’s Day​, UNFRAME and Fora presented a talk with London-based contemporary artists ​Caro Halford and ​Janet Currier ​looking at the position of female artists as they finally come out of the shadow of men and pave their own path for succeeding as artists.

Considering the position of women and female artists in the artworld from the C18th onwards, the talk covered a wide range of topics – the lack of female members at the Royal Academy; celebrating C18th Academicians Angelica Kauffman and Mary Moser; Laura Knight being made president of the RA recently; ‘Mothership’, and celebrating mother-artists; social and political concerns of women and their sexuality. Overall, the talk was a celebration of the female artist​. ​
