Girls actress Jemima Kirke (known as Jessa Johansson in the HBO series) addresses the topic of women in art (or the lack them).
She looks at the changing role of female artists in a male dominated art world over the centuries – and how some of them eventually took on the establishment in the 1970s.
So far in this series – part of Tate’s quest to bring art to a wider audience – our video team has collaborated with the likes of Frank Skinner, Alan Cumming and Sally Phillips to bring you crash courses in Performance Art, Pop Art and Shopping for Art.
Other films coming up in the series include one on Surrealism presented by Peter Capaldi, aka Doctor Who!
Unlock Art is a collaboration between Tate and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts.
