This landmark exhibition champions over 100 women artists working in the UK from 1970 to 1990, who were largely excluded from mainstream art institutions and narratives of the time.
Spanning painting, drawing, sculpture, film and performance, an expansive survey of work by women artists from this period will, for the first time, foreground influential and politically active figures and groups who transformed British culture and lay the groundwork for future generations of artists, but who have been historically side-lined in its retelling.
The key issues of the 70s and 80s in Britain – which caused or were created by immense social, economic and political change – will be explored in this exhibition: the British Women’s liberation movement, Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, Punk and Rock Against Racism, the underrepresentation of Black and South Asian Women Artists, the erasure of lesbian artists and Section 28, and the AIDs pandemic.
