We were delighted to welcome our new Visiting Fellow, Katy Hessel, to College yesterday evening to talk about The Story of Art without Men.
Katy Hessel is an art historian, curator, and broadcaster and runs @thegreatwomenartists, an Instagram account that has celebrated women artists on a daily basis since 2015.
She is the author of The Story of Art without Men, the Sunday Times bestseller and Waterstones Book of the Year 2022, and has a fortnightly column, The Great Women’s Art Bulletin, for the Guardian, where she writes about an artwork made by a woman which speaks to today’s news agenda.
Katy writes and hosts The Great Women Artists Podcast, interviewing artists and writers; British Vogue and the Evening Standard have listed it among their best podcasts. She also host Dior’s podcast, Dior Talks – Feminist Art, which includes interviews with Tracey Emin and Judy Chicago.
