For centuries, women’s artwork was neglected, their careers thwarted, and their achievements forgotten. Yet, despite the obstacles they faced, many persisted in making art.
This short talk from curator Rebecca Birrell introduces Women: Makers and Muses, a temporary exhibition drawing from our rich holdings of paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculpture, highlighting work by women throughout the history of art and from across the globe.
This display contrasts the way women saw themselves through their art from the beginning of the twentieth century to today with their representation by male artists. This is a short in-person talk in the gallery, lasting around 30 minutes.
