The Gallery Poster Project or Gallery Tally
Artist/Writer/Curator Micol Hebron
Gallery Tally is a crowd-sourced, social engagement art project in which 180+ artists from around the world have joined the effort to collect and visualize statistical data regarding ratios of male and female artists in top contemporary art galleries. Artists were invited to make one posters for each gallery, in whatever style or medium they chose. We started with galleries in Los Angeles. The second phase of the project will focus on galleries in NewYork. Subsequent visualizations will include Berlin, London, Chicago, Santa Fe, Portland, Pittsburg and other cities.
