International Meeting Women Artists and Museums: Towards a New Museum of Women Artists in Zagreb brings together esteemed museum professionals, curators, researchers, and scholars to examine and reflect upon diverse concepts, strategies, and practices of women’s and gender museums, with a specific focus on museums dedicated to women artists.
