An Arts Council Collection National Partners Exhibition
Marking a century since the first women won the right to vote, 'Women Power Protest' brings together modern and contemporary artworks from the Arts Council Collection and Birmingham’s own collection to celebrate female artists who have explored protest, social commentary and identity in their work.
Showcasing pieces by celebrated artists including Susan Hiller, Lubaina Himid, and Mary Kelly, as well as sometimes controversial artists such as Sam Taylor-Johnson, Sonia Boyce, and Margaret Harrison, the exhibition will not shy away from difficult subjects, nor underplay the genius behind these artworks.
Inspired by the bold work of feminist artists and activists, Women Power Protest will raise awareness, provoke debate and ask just how much has changed for women?
The exhibition will take place in the Gas Hall at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
