Gender inequality in Australia's visual arts

Published: Monday 14th March 2016

A new report by Lecturer in Graphics Elvis Richardson has revealed a lack of gender equality in Australia’s visual arts. Her study found that while close to three-quarters of Australian visual art graduates were women, more than half of the artists exhibited in commercial galleries and state museums were men.

Elvis has created a website,, which features more details about the gender ratio of artists, curators, directors and board members across all sectors.

Her research has also attracted media coverage by The Guardian and The Age.
