A CURATED DIRECTORY FOR WOMEN ARTISTS WORLDWIDE.
Women artists remain drastically underrepresented across the world. Founded by a female immigrant artist Svitlana Martynjuk, our goal is to offer a curated space to locate women artists from any corner of the world.
There are many places to find talent, but none where professional women artists can be discovered by discipline or location. Since women artists are extremely underrepresented in galleries and museums, talent searches leave an alarming majority of women artists undiscovered, unless organizations are committed to bringing equality into the art world.
It’s extremely difficult finding a community if you are new to the area as well, and we promote our directory to an array of global art organizations that might or might not already support visibility for women in the arts.

We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
We are dedicated to amplifying the voices of those who have been silenced, overlooked and pushed aside. With a focus on social justice, equality, and inclusion we hope to help level the playing field for underrepresented artists and communities. Our exhibitions focus on issues relating to gender, race, sexuality, systems of oppression, and the unseen forces driving our lives. Each show is intended to be a starting point for open dialogues- posing a question, asking you to think and react.
We do not sell artwork; instead, we believe that artists should get 100% of the sales money from their work. Links to artist's websites are attached to their names . We encourage our audience to contact artists individually, and to purchase work directly from artists. Buying directly from artists helps put more money in their pockets, allowing them to continue to make art, and helps to alleviate economic disparities.

The Hole presents monthly solo and group exhibitions with a focus on emerging art and thematic group exhibitions. We represent more than fifteen artists from America and abroad, and have exhibited over 200 more. Often two exhibitions run simultaneously in our space while works by gallery artists are available in our rear showroom.
In between exhibitions we host performances, events and special projects across disciplines to support collaboration and the downtown artist community.

Every three years, we invite artists from all over the world to create projects in a wide variety of venues spread throughout New Orleans. We bring new art to an old city, both inviting artists from around the globe to engage with New Orleans and raising the voices of artists who represent the Global South. Many Prospect projects are rooted in social justice issues and the city of New Orleans itself. Each iteration of Prospect is organized by a leading voice in the curatorial field. For residents and visitors alike, Prospect is an invitation to experience the city through the eyes of artists.
Prospect is also more than a recurring exhibition. In collaboration with local organizations and community partners, our year-round programming generates platforms for past and present Prospect artists in our community, sparking dialogues with youth, students, and the general public.

Gallery 1957 presents leading artists working across West Africa and the diaspora.
Launched by Marwan Zakhem on Ghana Independence Day, 2016, Gallery 1957 has since expanded across two gallery spaces within Accra, dedicating its programme to spearheading international exchanges between contemporary West African art practices and the rest of the world. Gallery 1957’s London space opened in October 2020 and provides a further platform through which to exhibit Gallery 1957 artists working across Africa and the diaspora.
Presenting a programme of exhibitions, installations and performances by the region’s most significant artists, Gallery 1957 bridges the gap between local and international audiences. Beyond its roster of diverse artists and exhibitions, global gallery partnerships and the establishment of the artist residency programme have welcomed many international artists and arts professionals to Ghana, encouraging them to engage further with the country’s rich contemporary art scene.
Gallery 1957’s work expands beyond the gallery walls through a public programme that includes fairs, talks, off-site projects and site-specific installations commissions - continuously supporting cultural initiatives in Ghana, and beyond.
