“WOMEN ARTISTS IN BRITAIN 1520 – 1920”
A Talk by Dr Amy Li
Tate Britain’s Research Curator of Major Exhibitions
Tuesday 23 April 2024, 13.45-15.45
Hill Close Gardens, Warwick, CV34 6HF
Ahead of the opening of Tate Britain’s major exhibition, Now You See Us: Women Artists in Britain 1520-1920 (16 May to 13 October 2024), Dr Amy Lim, curator of the exhibition, will reveal the highlights of the show including female artists from Tudor times up to Dame Laura Knight. Our speaker is Exhibition Researcher at Tate Britain and has been working on this exhibition over the last two years, focusing on nineteenth and early-twentieth century artists.
She will reveal how these artists challenged what it meant to be a working woman of the time by going against society’s expectations – having commercial careers as artists and taking part in public exhibitions. Often considered only amateurs, they refused to be boxed in and daringly painted what were viewed as subjects only for male artists: history pieces, battle scenes and of course, the nude.
