Inclusion in Book: 'Madam and Eve: Women Portraying Women' by Liz Ridea & Kathleen Soriano
16 Apr 2018
How do women paint or photograph each other? How do they represent each other in performance or sculpture? As mothers or heroines? With tenderness, aggression or respect? Madam & Eve explores the female gaze as it focuses on other women.
The authors – an artist and a curator – investigate the work of over 200 artists, ranging from the well-established to the lesser known. A historical introduction sets up the artistic and cultural context for the rest of the book, which focuses on art since the 1970s and covers the universal themes of the body, life, death, stories, and icons.
The result is an amazing parade of artworks: eye-catching, poignant, powerful, political, idiosyncratic, playful, awkward, passionate, sexy, and positive. It is also an eloquent examination of the impact that the feminist movement has had on contemporary art.

Ten artists were chosen and the always-creative fashion house Marni agreed to collaborate by using the artworks on limited-edition tote bags and T-shirts.

'REPORTRAIT', Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery
26 May 2017
The portrait has continued to be one of the most recognised, revisited, and arguably the most celebrated art forms throughout history. Exclusive to Nottingham Castle, this exhibition demonstrates how classical and traditional figurative portraiture continues to inspire artists today, and remains relevant within contemporary artistic discourse. Reportrait presents thirteen artists who have reimagined historical sources, altered or disrupted typical notions of how the portrait is defined, or used an image or reproduction as a starting point to create something new. Consisting of new commissions made in direct response to Nottingham City Museums & Galleries collections, alongside loans, and works straight from the artist’s studios, the exhibition showcases painting, photography, installation, digital art, sculpture, video and drawing, many of which have never been seen in public before.

'Women Artists - A Conversation', Fine Art Society, London
05 Feb 2017
The Fine Art Society is pleased to announce a major group exhibition of contemporary women artists. Featuring works in a diverse range of mediums, styles and genres, the exhibition represents a cross-section of the work produced by women today.
The show coincides with - and responds to - The Fine Art Society's sixth exhibition of the artist Gluck (1895-1978). A radical artist of her day, Gluck wanted to be recognised for her art and not for her gender. She adopted men's clothing, cropped her hair short and insisted on being addressed as Gluck: "no prefix, suffix or quote".
For Women Artists: A Conversation, twelve contemporary artists have been invited to respond to Gluck's legacy with their own original works. In the spirit of Gluck's fiercely guarded sense of individuality, the exhibition presents a selection of domestic, functional, private, abstract, descriptive, discursive and decorative works, intending to show that there is no single standard for what we consider a 'woman' artist and questioning the significance of staging an all-women show in 2017. Participating artists include Phoebe Boswell, Eileen Cooper RA, Jennifer Durrant RA, Vanessa Jackson RA, Annie Kevans, Susie MacMurray, Annie Morris, Ishbel Myerscough, Cathie Pilkington RA, Geraldine Swayne, Bettina von Zwehl, and Caroline Walker.

Solo Exhibition at Danziger Gallery, New York
03 Nov 2016
3 November - 13 January
Danziger Gallery is pleased to present our first show of works by the acclaimed British painter Annie Kevans. Known for the originality of her ideas as well as the deftness and beauty of her brushstrokes, since 2004 Kevans has created multiple series of portraits with provocative historical, social, or political concepts.
Our exhibition’s main focus is "The History of Art” - portraits of 20 women artists, either renowned in their time but now largely forgotten, or who came to be known via their association with male artists. Responding to the one-sidedness of art history, Kevans sees a person’s historical significance diminished without putting a face to a name. Her portraits seek to rectify that.
Complimenting this is a new group of paintings of male artists who incorporated drag into their self-portraiture, along with selections from four other series.

"A portrait of Linor Abargil—former Miss World winner from Israel. She was raped a few weeks before winning the title in 1998, subsequently she became and remains a global campaigner against sexual violence. Now retrained as a lawyer, she is deeply religious and is only seen in headscarves and long clothes. A documentary about her was made called ‘Brave Miss World’ (by a team of women), which won numerous awards around the world. I think Linor Abargil makes a fascinating subject because of her transformation from beauty queen icon to feminist icon, from model to activist, from bikinis to headscarves." Annie Kevans
