October 12, 2020 – November 11, 2020

The Latela Curatorial x Artsy: Women in the Arts Online Exhibition is a 6-week virtual exhibition featuring 102 women artists working across multiple media from DC, MD & VA.

Artworks are exhibited by themes or “viewing rooms”. One viewing room will open each week, for the six weeks of the exhibition. This online exhibition’s programming includes three panel discussions a week (18 panel discussions total) and studio visits on Instagram.

The mission of this exhibition is to highlight two pools of underrepresented artists: women in the arts and artists working in and around the nation’s capital. Washington DC is known for its museums and political climate, but not for its art scene.

“Of the 3,050 galleries in the Artsy database,10% represent not a single woman artist, while only 8% represent more women than men. Almost half represent 25% or fewer women.” – The Global Art Market Report 2019 (Art Basel/UBS)

Artworks in this exhibition are available for sale. Purchasing art made by women artists supports the gap in pay, auction market, press and exhibition representation of women in the arts. Additionally, when you purchase artwork from this fair, you also support Latela Curatorial’s mission to make space for women in arts management as Latela Curatorial is woman-owned and women-operated.

A percentage of proceeds from artworks sold during this exhibition will benefit the GLB Memorial Fund for the Arts, which provides financial support to women artists and curators who reside in Washington DC, Maryland or Virginia to further advance women-led contemporary art initiatives.
