Women to Watch

UK Friends of NMWA is delighted to announce Women to Watch UK: Metal, an exhibition of the work of Claire Barclay, Sara Barker, Rana Begum and Alison Wilding, kindly selected in association with Caroline Douglas, Director of the Contemporary Art Society.

  Women to Watch: Heavy Metal is NMWA’s fifth biennial exhibition in the series designed to increase the visibility of, and critical response to, women artists who deserve greater national and international attention. All of the museum’s 20 outreach committees worldwide have worked with a renowned local curator to nominate artists, from which NMWA’s curators will select one artist from each committee’s shortlist whose work will be featured in the most extensive Women to Watch exhibition to date, at NMWA in Washington, D.C. in June 2018.

  Women to Watch UK: Metal explores contemporary women artists’ diverse approaches to the physical properties and expressive possibilities of metal as a medium.  From the ornamental to the functional, from detailed silverwork to large-scale cast or welded metals, women have been involved in metal work for hundreds (if not thousands) of years.  Britain itself has a long tradition of innovative and inspiring women artists working in three dimensions and in particular with metal.

  The works by these artists will be on display at Phillips, Berkeley Square, W1 from Tuesday 14 November through Wednesday 22 November from 10am to 6pm.

We are holding a fundraising panel and champagne reception on 21 November. RSVP here.

UK Friends of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (“UK Friends of NMWA”) supports the mission of NMWA by championing art by women in the UK, past and present.
