WOW presents Valeria Napoleone & Caroline Douglas: In Conversation
5.30-6.30pm, East GalleryNUA
As part of the Women of the World Festival, join us for this free In Conversation event with Caroline Douglas (Contemporary Art Society Director) and philanthropist and art collector Valeria Napoleone.
The pair will discuss their new initiative VN XX CAS. The purpose of the initiative is to support the acquisition of significant works by female artists for Contemporary Art Society museum members across the UK. VN XX CAS acts as a focal point for debate on gender inequality in the arts. It intends to provoke an examination of collecting practice and the wider effect beyond the acquisition of the awarded work.
Valeria and Caroline will also explore such topics as the under representation of women artists in museums and galleries and at the head of arts organisations as well as sharing their thoughts on the promotion of further diversity and fostering a spirit of alliance moving forward.
