FORBES

The (Male) Art Entrepreneur Exhibiting Female Artists

Jun 29, 2019

In London, over two-thirds of artists represented in major galleries are men, even when gallery directors are women. But one young male gallery director is working to upend this inequality on multiple fronts…Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf is one London-based artist selling her work on the platform. She has seen the hurdles female artists face in the male-dominated art world.

Daughters of Medusa

Thu 27 Jun 2019, 6.30 – 9 pm

The Koppel Project | 49-50 Poland Street | Soho | London | W1F 7ND

Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf, The Daughters of Medusa features bold, figurative paintings of women – both self- portraits and subjects Rebecca knows – inspired by the mythological characterisation of women’s cycles, as well as personal stories and experiences.

”The power of the female gaze – which plays such a vital part in the story of Medusa – serves as one of the main focuses for the series of paintings. Even in Medieval times, it was believed that a glance from a menstruating or menopausal woman had the power to poison, or even kill. This illustrates the immense threat perceived not only from women’s menstrual blood (end period poverty) but also from female power itself, which still exists in many forms today.”

Exhibition: Daughters of Medusa


As ITV gear up for another predictable summer full of predictably thin people on Love Island, there’s never been a better time to remind ourselves of the importance of body positivity and healthy self image. That’s what this show, opening this week, champions. Promoting body positivity through the power of the female gaze, Daughters of Medusa takes the Medusa myth as a starting point to challenge our negative cultural conditioning of female identity, women’s bodies and menstruation. More exciting than any Love Island contestant let’s be honest.
