On 4-6 June the exhibition «Visibility. Why do we not know great women» took place in the Sevkabel Port gallery, Saint-Petersburg.

The aim of it was to emphasize the invisible status of women in art history and science, which is being kept by them over the many years. To maintain this aim, curators were to make the modern female artists' works visible.
During the exhibition were raised the very actual issues, concerning nowadays modern female artists, and found out what is important for them to tell to their predecessors. Moreover, artists strived to clear up the reasons for the gender gap in art and science.
