Online | Sydney Writers' Festival - Katy Hessel: The Story of Art Without Men


How many women artists do you know? Who makes art history? And what is the Baroque anyway?

Enter art historian and curator Katy Hessel’s The Story of Art Without Men, a response to E.H. Gombrich’s classic chronicle, The Story of Art, first published in 1950, which was recently updated to include... one woman.

Katy’s revisionist history builds on her popular podcast and Instagram account, The Great Women Artists, where her fresh approach has garnered fans worldwide and earned her a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list.

Overturn art history as you know it with Katy, in conversation with curator Beatrice Gralton.

This event is presented by the Sydney Writers' Festival
