Abstract: Gender Inequality in the Arts, is a research based installation project that aims to explore the ways women have been excluded from the art world historically and uncover achievements made by women in art that have gone unnoticed or remain hidden due to the lack of inclusion. While women are gaining more representation each year in the art world, this group still faces many obstacles that male artists don’t have to face. The research component of this project gives an overview of the historical lack of inclusion of women in art. It also addresses some achievements made by women that have been downplayed by historical records and are recently coming to light. The physical project and installation serves as a visual representation of this research and aims to start a meaningful conversation with the viewer about this pervasive topic.
