Why are we still having this conversation? In 2013 the Guerilla Girls ask the question ‘Do women have to be naked to get into the Metropolitan Museum?’ Less than 3% of artists in the Met’s Modern Art sections are women, but 83% of the nudes are female. Why is this? Is women’s art different to men’s? Is the situation changing? Our panel will endeavor to answer the question, does gender really matter?
