Exhibition Opening: Women & Water

October 20, 2023 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us to celebrate the opening of our new exhibition, Women & Water, which explores the relationship between women and water in the works of 17 women artists, spanning from the early twentieth century to the present day. The exhibition examines how water has been used by artists both as subject matter and artistic medium to reflect the multiplicity of women’s experiences.

Artists: Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Phoebe Boswell, Joyce W. Cairns, Eileen Cooper, Betsy Damon, Tracey Emin, Mary Fedden, Elisabeth Frink, Marcelle Hanselaar, Chloe Ho, Laura Knight, Sarah Lederman, Joanna Moss, Rachel Nicholson, May Stevens, Madinah Thompson, Janet White

For these artists, water represents both a source of pleasure and refuge, as well as a threatening, dangerous presence. In their depictions of water, the artists reflect on family relationships, personal griefs and generational traumas. Water also becomes a symbol of new life, the passage of time and the possibility of renewal.

Drinks from 6pm, curator’s talk at 7pm. Register here for free.
