“87% of artists represented by galleries are male. 85% are white. There are about 2 million artists in the US and less than a quarter of them have gallery representation so the bottleneck is tremendous, and of the women that are actually represented by galleries, that’s about 13%, 47% of their work are discounted.” -ManuelaIt never occurred to me just how underrepresented minority voices are in the art world, let alone how staggering the numbers are. So She Slays loves to help amplify the voices of industries that maybe not a lot of us know about. The art world is one of these places where we’ve been lucky enough to learn more about. And in the efforts of educating ourselves, we hope to also bring more knowledge to you.One of the facets we’ve gotten to explore is how exclusive the world of art can be to not only women but minorities in general. We’ve also gotten to speak with people like Manuela and Renata, the CEO and COO of Alpha’a, that are working to disrupt the status quo and bring forth voices that don’t often get heard.
