Is the Met becoming more Gender-inclusive?
By: Simona Sivkoff-Livneh
In this project, I explore themes of inclusion and representation in culture, as reflected in the collections and acquisitions of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I do this by looking at the gender of the artists whose works are currently represented in the holdings of various museums, using data from Wikidata. By segmenting this data by acquisition date, I investigate whether there is a shift to greater equity of representation.
