September 8 2022,
EOH Inaugural NFT show on Super Rare
Eye of the Huntress, in partnership with SuperRare, is thrilled to present unique works by Aslan Ruby from Australia – the artist behind the ethereal Meta Angels projects, Talia Zoref from Israel – the creator of Eyes of Fashion, Varvara Alay from Georgia - the artist behind the Flower Girls NFT projects, American artist and fashion designer Dayoung Kim - creator of the Mavion world, and stellar multidisciplinary artists including Serbian Misha Milovanovich, Canadian-Nigerian Lizzy Aroloye, and British artists Laura Shepherd, Kate Daudy, and Charlotte Colbert in our inaugural NFT show. It's been more than 50 years since Linda Nochlin wrote her seminal essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” in which she stated that the key is critical practice. Rather than simply inserting women into the canon, we must crack open the canon itself and challenge conventional ways of thinking, writing, seeing and creating. We are now standing on the precipice of a new paradigm – and pioneering women are embracing technology and a utopian vision with decentralization at its core that covers everywhere large and small on this beautiful planet and beyond into the Metaverse. The title ‘Goddess’ celebrates the divine feminine who lives within us all empowering us to build a better, more nurturing and beautiful world. However despite being half the population, women remain marginalized both in the digital and traditional art world. A report by The National Museum of Women in the Arts, found the represented artists in the top 18 museums in the US are 87% male and 85% white. In the NFT space, things are no different. In 2021, women accounted for only 16% of the NFT art market and 5% of sales. The Eye of the Huntress has made it their mission to break the bias and carve a niche that highlights women creators in Web 3. As a female led platform, this is part of our DNA. We are delighted to bring together nine international women with diverse practices from fashion, film, design and fine art, whose work intersects the physical and digital.
