Dutch female
8 March β€”β€” 12 May


Saatchi Gallery, in collaboration with the artist-curator Louise te Poele, is proud to present Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: A Celebration of Dutch Female Artists. The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam is providing a loan from their permanent collection.

When THINKING of the Dutch Masters, why do only male artists come to mind? Addressing the persistent gender imbalance in the art world, this exhibition highlights the underrepresentation of contemporary Dutch female artists. It aims to provide a platform for experienced creators and emerging talents – fostering collaboration and solidarity among women in the arts..
