Micol Hebron is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles and a recently tenured Associate Professor at Chapman University in Orange, CA. She has been engaged in individual and collaborative projects in Los Angeles since 1992. Her work frequently explores the artist’s relationship to art-making, art history and modernism in particular.
GalleryTally is a crowd-sourced, social engagement art project in which over 600 artists from around the world—men and women– have joined the effort to collect and visualize statistical data regarding ratios of male and female artists in top contemporary art galleries. Artists were invited to make one poster for each gallery, in whatever style or medium they chose. All posters are 24” x 36”. It began with galleries in Los Angeles, and then focused attention on galleries in New York. Subsequent visualizations will include Berlin, London, Chicago, Santa Fe, Portland, Pittsburg, and other cities.
An exhibition of more than 300 of them will go on view at For Your Art at 6020 Wilshire Boulevard in LA, in an exhibition titled (en)Gendered (in)Equity: The Gallery Tally Poster Project. The posters are on view on a tumblr site as well.
