THE BIG ART HERSTORY PROJECT
The Big Art Herstory Project is a brand new arm of LDG, founded by London based Painter and Co-Founder of London Drawing Group, Luisa Maria MacCormack.
Luisa founded the group in 2018 after two years teaching with LDG with the aim of spreading the basic facts of Art-Herstorical-Feminism (our term, we invented it ;) ) to a wider audience. Luisa’s classes within the group are the immensely popular Drawing Tours, often distinctly feminist in nature, that see groups of students plunged into the patriarchal world of the museum and gallery spaces of London, ferreting out the untold stories and overlooked imaginations of the women who lurk in the shadows.
The Big Art Herstory Project was founded in London in 2018 with the simple aim of telling the other side of the story, you know, the one that ISN’T told in Art Galleries, Museums, History books or Schools. The one about WOMEN, brave, audacious, oppressed, triumphant, talented, wonderful WOMEN, and NOT just the naked ones!
The need for this information is real and immediate, and through our events and classes we attempt to consolidate the many channels of information available into digestable, understandable chunks, because we believe that EVERYONE has a right to this information, and if it isn’t on the curriculum, we’ll just put it there ourselves!
We believe that everyone should know these incredible and often terrible stories, because when the shadow of economic downturns, ignorance and intolerance loom, women’s rights and the rights of minorities are the first rights that are eroded, and only knowledge openness, hard-work and compassion will begin to amend the skewed perspective of History, and THAT is what we’re here to do.
