This is the first chance to see American pop artist Jann Haworth (b1942) and Liberty Blake’s (b1986) mural Work in Progress in the UK.

The 28ft mural is the result of a collaborative community project and celebrates women who were catalysts for change in the arts, sciences and social activism. Featuring over 100 women and spanning over 3000 years, it raises the question of how many of these different lives and endeavours have become unjustly marginalised or forgotten throughout history.

Alongside the mural, discover Haworth’s sculptural and wall-based works dating from the 1960s to the present day. Haworth challenged the conventional perception on form and appropriate subject matter for sculpture, recreating instead the elderly, doughnuts, newspaper comic sections, charm bracelets and cowboys – all cast in cloth. Her life-size and large-scale works directly engage the viewer in a dialogue with her work. The exhibition goes on to explore female creativity through Haworth’s own selection of works from the Gallery’s collection.
