Women and art

Measuring equality in the art world.

Day five

There was not an art section in the guardian’s G2 today so I had a look at the film and music supplement instead.

On the first page Jude Rogers is writing about Lilly Allen and how disapointed she is to see her topless on the cover of Q.

The cover story is about Charles Bronson, Britain’s most notorious prisoner and the new film about his life called Bronson.

On page four there is one article about Hitchcock and one about the American singer-songwriter M Ward.

The next article is about Norman Cook and his new CD.

On page five we can read about young Brooklyn bands.

Then there is an article about the director Jennifer Lynch.

On page eight there is an article about the DJ Grandmaster Flash.

There is an interesting article by Bibi van der Zee on page nine. She writes about Hollywood and how sexist it is. She says: ” It’s sexist in a way that must make industries like construction and engineering take of their had-hats and whistle with admiration.”

She also adds that of the top 250 films in 2007 only six per cent of the directors were women and only two per cent of the cinematographers.
Van der Zee then analysis ten movies and how big role the women have in them.

The next article is about the jazz musician Benny Golson and the one after that is about the pianist Murray Perahia.

On the back page David Thompson has written about Michelle Williams and how he hopes that she will not disappear in Heath Ledger’s shadow.
