A few months ago, to mark the publication of Great Women Artists, the most extensive fully illustrated book of women artists ever published, Phaidon and Artspace teamed up with the fashion and luxury goods firm, Kering, to produce a charitable portfolio of limited-edition prints to benefit the Kering-selected non-profit Promundo, a global leader in advancing gender equality.

A few days ago, Phaidon and Kering partnered with Christie’s auction house, to continue its support of female artists, when the three companies co-hosted a dinner during Frieze LA.

The Great Women Artists portfolio was styled throughout the space, although the real stars of the evening were the artists such as White, Rubins and Dupuy-Spencer, who are all featured in our new book.
