Women in Art: From Image to Image-Maker
with Mary McCartney, Sonia Boyce, Lisa Armstrong and Bettina Korek

Wednesday 15 March, 12pm

The idea of the artist’s muse conjures up a glamorous but passive woman portrayed by a male artist. Yet many of these women have been talents in their own right, creatively inspired as well as sources of inspiration in others. In this panel chaired by Serpentine Galleries CEO Bettina Korek, photographer Mary McCartney, artist Sonia Boyce and Daily Telegraph fashion director Lisa Armstrong will examine how through art, fashion and photography women have succeeded in breaking the boundaries set by men, reframing the role of women in art as both image and image-maker.
