Visible Women @ Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery

14 April 2018 - 11 November 2018

Visible Women brings together work from Norwich Castle’s modern and contemporary collection made by women in order to celebrate their work and open up conversations about the under-representation of female artists in public collections. The title of the exhibition was adapted from the seminal book 50% Visible Women created by the radical feminist artist Penny Slinger (b.1947) while at the Chelsea College of Art, London in 1969.  Using photographic collage and original poetry, Slinger’s book examines how a woman is seen and how she sees herself; women take on multiple identities such as woman as goddess, woman as object of desire, and woman as mother, among others. What connects all these artists in this exhibition is their exploration of the human experience. Whether this is one that can be argued as ‘gendered’ is up for debate.
