THE FEMALE ARTISTS DEFINING THE CONTEMPORARY ART LANDSCAPE

  • Charlie Colville

The art world is constantly evolving, challenging preconceptions on what it means to be an artist and what exactly constitutes an artwork. Female artists are taking the lead in innovation and building an artistic landscape far more inclusive than any other in the history of art. Charlie Colville shares her list of contemporary female artists you need to know today.

Creativity never stops, even during a pandemic. Art has continued to thrive since March 2020, despite the impact of lockdown on creative industries, galleries, and art shows. Artists have kept working to hone their craft, producing artworks which provide a commentary on their experiences of the pandemic and life in general.

We live in a time where artists, in particular female artists, are able to receive more opportunities for exposure than ever before. Women are stepping out from the shadow of male-dominated history, taking a leading role in the art of the here and now. They continue to shape the contemporary art landscape for the better – even with the limitations of lockdown. Taking their art from gallery to home, and from home to social media, the reach of the female artist is nothing to scoff at.

With the hopeful news that galleries and museums will reopen within the coming months, we wanted to take you through some female artists you should be keeping an eye on in 2021.
