100 percent Women 100 percent Women 100 percent Women
100% Women kicks off today at the Richard Saltoun Gallery, 1 March 2019. ‘Form, Feminisms, Femininities‘ is Rose ENGLISH’s first solo exhibition with Richard Saltoun Gallery and opens the galleries year long programme of women artists.
British artist Rose ENGLISH is an integral figure in the development of performance art in Britain. The exhibition will provide rich insights into this element of English’s practice, as well as her work in other art forms: photography, painting and ceramics.
‘Form, Feminisms, Femininities‘ is Rose ENGLISH’s first solo exhibition with Richard Saltoun Gallery. The exhibition shines light on two moments from the early stages of the artist’s career, beginning with her experimentation with emergent processes and materials as a young artist in the early 1970s and culminating with a focus on her 1983 performance Plato’s Chair, a work that marked an important turning point in English’s extensive interdisciplinary practice. The exhibition will present for the first time several early works in photography, ceramics, collage and performance to camera, providing a unique opportunity to more fully engage with different aspects of the artist’s work.
From March 2019, the gallery are dedicating 100% of their programme to women. This 12-month programme is part of the gallery’s long-standing commitment to supporting under-recognised and under-represented female artists.
