In Conversation: Rogue Women

Rogue Women was founded by artists Jen Orpin and Margaret Cahill with the aim of helping to redress the gender imbalance in the art world. Two hugely successful exhibitions of work by female artists later, Rogue Women is coming to The Manchester Contemporary: in this panel discussion, hosted by award-winning arts journalist and editor Polly Checkland Harding, Jen Orpin and Margaret Cahill are joined by fellow exhibitors Jo McGonigal and Lindsey Bull to discuss why women artists remain underrepresented – and how Rogue Women is working to change this. Each an outstanding artist in their own right, they have variously shown at national and international galleries, won multiple awards and been chosen for public and private collections – and together, they are a powerful argument for better representation for women in the art world. Discover the common themes between their practices, and the transformative power of collaboration in this 45 minute conversation, free to Manchester Art Fair ticket holders.
