Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts Announces New Art Film Starring Actress Jemima Kirke

Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts and Tate, a collection of leading art galleries in the UK, recently announced the fourth film from their “Unlock Art” partnership.  Titled “Unlock Art: Where are the Women?” the new online film about the women in art features Jemima Kirke, the British-born American artist and actress best known for her role as Jessa Johansson on the television series “Girls”. 

In Unlock Art: Where are the Women? Kirke examines the struggle that women have faced over the centuries to be represented in a male dominated art world, and how they developed innovative strategies to participate, highlighting key players in the movement including artists like Marina Abramovic and Cindy Sherman.  View video here: http://www.lemeridien.com/filmseries
