The Only Women in Art History Who Matter According to Richard Serra, as written by Richard Serra on Gagosian Gallery letterhead, 2006
Ink on paper
Diptych, each 38 x 31 cm framed
This artwork arose from an argument I had with Richard Serra regarding the merits of a certain female artist's paintings while I was working at Gagosian Gallery and he was preparing for an exhibition.
The title is self-explanatory. I kept the list Richard wrote, framed it and created an accompanying commemorative plaque.
This documented list, written by one of history's most revered male artists (on the official letterhead of one of history's most successful male gallerists), reveals the rampant gender biases ingrained in the patriarchal Art World, writ large.
