Marie YATES b. 1940

Marie YATES is known for her conceptual works addressing issues of representation, signification and sexual difference in the form of installation and text-based works. In the early 1960s, Yates was also known as a painter and environmental sculptor. She continues to work presently through projection and installation projects.

 

Her installation works have appeared in many public sites in Britain and abroad, as well as in the collections of the Arts Council of England, the British Council and the Royal West of England Academy and in private collections. Her first major solo exhibition was in 1973 at the Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol. She also exhibited in many women's group shows in the 1980s, contributing to curating, organising and speaking at conferences and feminist events up and down the country.
