Open Call for Researchers Working on Female and Non-Binary Artists

Oct. 18, 2022

AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions is launching a residency programme at the Villa Vassilieff in Paris for research on female and non-binary photographers and video artists. AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions is a non-profit organisation, co-founded in 2014 by Camille Morineau, art historian and specialist in the history of women artists.

To counter the underrepresentation of women in the art world, AWARE seeks to rebalance the presence of women artists by giving them more visibility through the publication of free online resources. The bilingual French/English website provides more than 900 biographies of women artists from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as articles and interviews written by researchers and curators from around the world.
