Saatchi Gallery in London will mark its 30th anniversary by hosting its first all-female exhibition.
Champagne Life, is set to open on January 13 and will bring together 14 emerging artists from around the world.
"We've always supported the work of women artists over the years, many of those have gone on to have key roles in the contemporary art world, but I think there's still a huge amount of work to be done," said Nigel Hurst, the gallery's chief executive. He continues to say that, "though women artists are far better represented in contemporary art now, in terms of the number of women artists that are having their work exhibited and shown, there remains a glass ceiling that needs to be addressed."
The highest price ever paid at auction for a work by a living female artist is $7.1m for a Yayoi Kusama painting vs. a sculpture by Jeff Koons for $58.4m. The most paid for a work by a deceased female artist is $44.4m for a Georgia O'Keeffe painting compared to $142.4m for a Francis Bacon triptych.
Based on a 2013 pole by the London Fawcett group, only 31% of the represented artists were women.
