In this episode of season 5, Susheel Siram, an Oxford Saïd MBA and host, discusses gender inequity in the art market with fellow student Brooke Reese.
Prior to pursuing her MBA, Brooke spent over five years in the contemporary and modern art market. She begins by sharing her experience working in the art world and then delves deep into the role that gender plays in the valuation of art. Drawing on her experience and research, Brooke analyses the reasons behind the undervaluing of artwork created by women and makes predictions about how this theme will develop in the age of digital art.
