Tracking the historical changes influencing women artists, this exhibition explores the similarities and differences between the status and careers of women working in different areas within the fine and decorative arts fields as reflected in the collections of the Walker Art Gallery.
A rich variety of work from both recent and contemporary painters and designers such as Paula Rego, Helen Chadwick, Louise Bourgeois and Alison Britton will be shown alongside historic works drawn from the Gallery’s collections. Includes paintings, prints, textiles and ceramics.
