Start Date: Aug 1st

Opening Times: Mon-Fri 9am-5pm
Opening Event: Aug 3rd 7-9pm

We don’t often hear about great female abstract artists. Abstraction developed during the modern period and, as Griselda Pollock writes in Modernity and the Spaces of Femininity, ‘all those canonised as the initiators of modern art [were] men.’ Emma Sullivan and Imogen Porteous will deconstruct traditional notions of femininity through abstraction, challenging the hierarchy of this seemingly patriarchal style. They aim to invert the female gaze so that she looks inwards rather than outwards.
