We do not argue for that is a feminist, woman only, art exhibition during Talk Town in Copenhagen. Talk Town, a series of events focusing on gender, equality and feminism inspired by Denmark’s hosting of the World Conference on Women, the ‘Women Deliver’ conference. Talk Town overlaps the conference and extends the series feminist events in Copenhagen.
The title of the exhibition refers to the existing problem in the established art world: art works by women are regarded from a gendered perspective, while art works by male artists is just art and as such not subject to a gendered debate. The works in the exhibition will not necessarily be based on themes such as gender equality and feminism, nor is it a condition that the invited artists see themselves or their art as being enrolled in a feminist context.
With the choice of selecting female artists only the curators, Iben Andersen and Clara Starck, highlight the inequality that is currently existing in the art world: works by men are exhibited more often than works by women.
The exhibiting artists are: Lil Wachmann, Signe Vad, Melou Vanggaard, Clara Blach Starck, Kristina Elisabeth Steinbock, Mailind Solvind Mjøen, Marianne Jørgensen, Henriette Hellstern, Johanne Helga Heiberg Johansen, Margarita del Carmen, Honey Biba Beckerlee, Iben Andersen, Nanna Riis Andersen
