Women Constructed at Swiss Cottage Gallery
Curated by Charlie Levine
Part of Camden VOX with Camden Art Collection
Susan Allix, Prunella Clough, Linda Heywood, Phillippa James, Tess Jaray, Charlotte Jennings, Edwina Leapman, Jeannie Masoero and Valerie Thornton
Women Constructed presents 9 female artists from the Camden Collection, all of whom look at line, abstraction, grids and construction as central themes in their work. This show profiles traditionally thought masculine artworks in an attempt to start a conversation around the idea that women are a construct of patriarchal society.
Most importantly this is an exhibition that examines the amount of women in art collections and aims to question how we can better diversify and re-examine which works get collected and how archives can help define eras in a more representative manner.
Quiet Down There will be providing engagement opportunities for FREE as part of this exhibition. More details to follow.
