The Age of Abstraction: Women Artists

Red Screen by Sandra Blow © Sandra Blow Estate
Friday 5 February 2016 - Saturday 29 October 2016

Abstraction was one of the most significant artistic developments of 20th century, with artists eschewing direct representation to create a new visual language that questioned the limits of art.

It is believed that it was a female artist, Hilma Af Kilnt, who first pioneered abstraction; this display looks at the women who followed in her footsteps during the 1960s and 1970s.
