Artist panel discussion for Heavy Metal: Women to Watch
November 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
UK Friends of NMWA is delighted to announce a fundraising panel discussion and champagne reception supporting Heavy Metal: Women to Watch, featuring artists Claire Barclay, Rana Begum and Alison Wilding in discussion with Caroline Douglas, Director of the Contemporary Art Society.
Heavy Metal: Women to Watch 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.
