Elvis Richardson has released the latest benchmarking report on gender equality in the Australian contemporary visual art sector. It compiles and analyses data on education, prizes, funding, art media, staffing at organisations as well as exhibitions across a wide range of galleries in Australia. Public and regional galleries fair relatively well with their 2014 exhibition programs having included 45% female artists, 50% male artists and 5% collaborations.
The Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the lands where our office is located, and all Traditional Owners of country throughout Victoria and Australia. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples enduring traditions and continuing creative cultures. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
