The Girls Who Became Artists

In the run up to International Women’s Day, we asked our women artists for a message to their younger selves. We asked,

“What would you say to the little girl who became the artist you are today?”

The responses were inspiring.

As in many other sectors, the odds are often stacked against professional women artists. If we want the art world to be representative we need to raise awareness and inspire young women to #BeBoldForChange in what is often a male dominated world.

We are proud to exhibit the work some Europe's most talented women artists. Learn about them, read their inspiring messages and celebrate their success and achievements.
