Gen­der quota

ImagineFX - - Imaginenation -

I agree a quota sys­tem (men­tioned in Letters, is­sue 120) to cre­ate a gen­der bal­ance of fea­tured artists is not the way to go. That said, two of this cen­tury’s su­per­stars who are wor­thy of an is­sue each hap­pen to be young women – Fiona Sta­ples and Victo Ngai. An in­ter­view with Diane Dil­lon about be­ing a prom­i­nent fe­male artist for over 50 years would not go amiss ei­ther. Oc­ca­sional cover art picturing males in­stead of fe­males would also be ap­pre­ci­ated. Dame, US, via email Beren replies Thanks Dame. The great thing about this Letters page is to hear back from you guys. Open­ing up a di­a­logue about gen­der in­equal­ity, vis­i­bil­ity and rep­re­sen­ta­tion may bring with it strong, dif­fer­ing opin­ions, but it’s so im­por­tant, es­pe­cially if it re­sults in the cel­e­bra­tion of great artists. The more we hear from you about the artists you love, the bet­ter for you, the artist, and the mag­a­zine.
