Not 30%: An Exhibition dedicated to Women

To mark it’s 30th edition, The Other Art Fair London have launched a second fair site, The College, wholly dedicated to showcasing women artists.

Curated by arts broadcaster and Soho House’s Head of Collections, Kate Bryan, Not 30% is part exhibition and part protest against the male dominated art world. A recent report showed women are at best represented 30% of the time in the art world.

60% of art graduates are women, yet in gallery representation, museum collections and exhibitions, the presence of women artists amounts to a maximum of 30%, often far less. At a time when more and more people are keen to support and collect women artists, Kate Bryan has handpicked a thrilling selection of 30 to take centre stage, delivered in one carefully curated place.

Kate says; “I am a huge fan of The Other Art Fair. I love its democratic ethos and the way it truly supports and gives a vital, fresh platform for artists. When I was asked to curate a special section at The College I knew we had a safe space for a noisy moment about women artists. Not 30% draws attention to the stark gender bias of the art world and actively positions these artists as a creative force not to be ignored. There are many changes underway in the art world to address gender imbalance and Not 30% is happily part of a larger and urgent dialogue.”

Kate Bryan will also be giving free guided tours around the exhibition to meet the artists and explore opportunities to invest. Visitors should book on arrival at the welcome desk of The College.


The Other Art Fair London opens 4-7 October 2018 at Victoria House & The College. Buy tickets for the fair online now
