The sale presents Paddle8s latest installment of focused Post-War and Contemporary Auctions, which feature curated works around a singular theme. The auction aims to celebrate works by female artists and to challenge the male dominated post-war and contemporary art canon. "We are thrilled that a wider movement in the art market giving female artists prominence is gaining traction," states Megan Mulrooney, Senior Specialist, Post-War & Contemporary Art at Paddle8. "There has never been a more prescient context for this vital effort than today's tumultuous discourse on women's rights."
