Only 6 out of 32 Turner Prize winners have been female since its inception in 1984. Between 2007 and 2014, the proportion of solo shows given to female artists in UK institutions hovers around 25%. At MoMA in April 2015, only 7% of the works in their permanent display are by women. Here’s a good one – in the year 2000, the Guggenheim in New York had zero solo shows by women. Not one. I’m sure that wasn’t a decision made as part of a woman-hating agenda – I suspect the curators didn’t notice until a journalist compiled some statistics and called them out, but that’s what modern sexism looks like. It’s enough to make me want to throw my laptop out the window and pick up a paintbrush, if only to make a point. And if contemporary statistics look dismal, just imagine what it was like more than 40 years ago.
