ArtCan will be hosting a virtual exhibition for International Women’s Day 2022, titled Framing Our Future: Making it in 2022, from March 5 - 26, 2022 with a Virtual Private View: 8 March @ 18.00 UTC. Building on ArtCan’s international membership and founding principle of fair pay for artists, the exhibition will focus on the incredible art our women members are producing.

Framing our future will showcase artists Siusan Patterson (recipient of the Royal Scottish Academy’s 2021 SABA Award), Emma Copely (Shortlisted for The Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize), Catalina Chirstensen (co-founder of The Wilderness Art Collective), Laura Parker (shortlisted for the 2022 New Emergence Art Prize) and Heloise O’Keeffe (2022 British Contemporary Art Award finalist). With works spanning sculpture, photography, watercolour, textiles and print, this exhibition is an opportunity to view the work of emerging front runners in the contemporary art scene. 

Curated by Yeside Linney and Wilma Woolf, this exhibition is a presentation of what women artists have been inspired to create and compelled to respond to in a time of unprecedented global change. We witness responses to international events impacting women’s rights across the globe; psychological impacts of curtailed lives due to pandemic lockdown; navigations of identity; bodily autonomy and a righteous claiming of space. The selected works reflect the confidence and assurance of the artists. Together these works create both an exhibition of depth and importance and a platform for women’s lived experiences through the art they create.

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to view the works of women artists making it in 2022.

ArtCan will be delivering an associated programme of interviews as well as a panel talk on fair pay, financial equality and artistic representation within the arts.
