While the UK’s major galleries have historically been dominated by male artists, the metaverse provides a level field for female creators to claim their equal space. Chaired by Brooke Theis, Harper’s Bazaar, this panel will consider the opportunity the virtual-art market presents women; the ways in which female artists are building communities in the metaverse; and the women traders who are making their mark.
