Spotlight on Women in Art

Join us in discovering and celebrating female artists presented at London Art Fair this January. 


Join this panel discussion with Sophie Marie Niang, Naomi Polonsky, Claudia Clare and Ann Jones as they explore the unique history of the New Hall Art Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art by women.

This panel will explore the unique history of the New Hall Art Collection, its foundation in 1992 through an act of collective giving by 75 women artists, its evolution over the past three decades to become the largest collection of art by women in Europe, and how it functions as a network and community of women artists.

Gillian Jason Gallery works with female and non-binary artists from across the generations to present engaging exhibitions about the most resonant ideas of our time. A combination of attuned cultural consciousness, people-first relationships, and a 40-year history of exhibiting work by pioneering artists, makes GJG a go-to reference point for those looking to support and collect art from beyond the white male canon that addresses today’s critical shifts.

By no coincidence, the history of the gallery runs parallel with the history of modern feminism, a correlation that’s never far from curatorial considerations at GJG. As contemporary feminisms develop with increasingly inclusive awareness, the team continues to explore and evolve its own conceptions around what is most salient in art by female and non-binary artists now, and by extension to perpetually reappraise questions of importance and value according to society’s ever-shifting sands.

Candida Stevens Gallery is a curation led gallery established in 2012. The gallery produces exhibitions that explore important themes through the responses of new or relevant work by some of the finest emerging and established artists working in Britain today. With an energetic, curatorial curiosity the gallery works with artists who we believe have the skill, determination, integrity, enquiry and aptitude to make successful and interesting work.
