With 18 women artists from the loosely defined 'Women Artists Group Amsterdam', initiated by Melissa Gordon in 2011, we decided to do an art swap. For this occasion I wrote the feminine names of well known (male) artists, and used their names to design a silk scarf. Only from the 20th century women artists were included by name in art history. I used the names of the most well known artists, as taught in art history, like Da Vinci, Tizian, Van Gogh etc. and for the more modern and contemporary artists I looked at several lists, like artfacts.net

First edition in 2012 is with 16 names written in red and 47 names written in black.
The art swap took place on April 11, 2012
