THE CONFERENCE / DEBATE
Camille Claudel, Sonia Delaunay, Frida Khalo, Berthe Morisot, world-famous female artists we are happy to present, yet always mentioned in conjunction with their partner’s name.
What has been the role of women in the art world? Have critics and collectors received them in the same way as male artists?
Camille Morineau will discuss these questions with you and will explore with you what is being done and how the Art World is changing.
Price includes dinner.
