Jennifer Rubell Honoured at Women in the Arts event 2014

Women in the Arts 2014 will honor two outstanding people: world-class contemporary art collector Mera Rubell, and exceptional performance and installation artist Jennifer Rubell-we have found that few creative relationships can be as inspirational as that of a mother and daughter.

Now in its 12th year this unique and inspiring event will continue the important tradition of celebrating the empowerment of women's leadership and innovation in the arts. Mera and Jennifer will join a long list of notable honorees, including Laurie Simmons and Lena Dunham, Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker, Maya Lin and Annie Leibovitz.

The award will take place on Wednesday 22 October.
