Fact or Fiction was inspired by the LIGHTGREY ARTLAB gallery in Canada who had created and set up an exhibition with the same name back in 2012. 100+ artists celebrate their favorite and most inspirational women from history, fiction, literature, music, and more. This collection of work embodies the powerful, legendary, and courageous efforts of these well- known women, as well as the diversity and talent of the participating illustrators.
