Gallery artists Helen Chadwick, Penny Slinger, Rose English, Su Richardson, Hackney Flashers, Janis Jefferies, Erica Rutherford, Alexis Hunter and Jo Spence, will be included in Women in Revolt!, as part of Tate Britain's 2023 programme.
This exhibition will be the first of its kind – a major survey of work by over 100 women artists working in the UK from 1970 to 1990. Through their creative practices, women’s liberation was forged against the backdrop of extreme social, economic and political change.
Women in Revolt! will focus on a hugely diverse range of artists and a wide variety of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, film and performance.
The show will celebrate the work and lived experiences of women who, frequently working outside mainstream art institutions, were largely left out of the artistic narratives of the time. It will showcase a productive, politically engaged set of communities, who changed the face of British culture and paved the way for future generations of artists.
The exhibtion will run from 8 November 2023 – 7 April 2024.
