After reading the Artforum Scene and Herd, I find December 10th was a remarkable day. In parallel to the Tate hosted lunch for me and 170 Women in Art , Miuccia Prada is hanging out in a male dominated environment in Ukraine at Victor Pinchuk’s spectacular event, with the likes of Damien Hirst, Nick Serota, Jeff Koons, Andreas Gursky etc. I am not quite sure who won the prize?
Meanwhile back in London there I am with these incredible women and celebrating my BIG Birthday.
In my speech I also told everyone “there is definitely something in the air, could this be the beginning of another change?” I told these great ladies including Jenny Lomax, Tracey Emin and Sue Webster that “behind our stoic facades of intellect and image we are all very vulnerable and should be a support system to each other.”
Victor commented that “I believe in the power of women”. And Miuccia replied “Women have to decide how to use power and not continue to live in the shadow of men”.
