Podcast: Women in focus

Perspectives of a female artist

Published 10 April 2016

Does being a female artist influence how a work is created and perceived? Our panel discuss.

  • In this podcast, our panel of artists explore what it means to create work from a female perspective in today’s contemporary art world.

    Is the gender of an artist significant in the creative process? How significant is the “female gaze” in contemporary art – work that is presented from a female perspective or reflecting female attitudes?

    Eva Rothschild RA, Vanessa Jackson RA and Josie Cockram discuss these issues and the extent to which being a female artist has influenced their work. Chaired by Hilary Robinson, Professor of Visual Culture at Middlesex University and editor of Feminism-Art-Theory 1968-2014, this is a lively and engaging debate.
