Professor Roshini Kempadoo and Dr Lucy Reynolds, researchers at our Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media, are part of an exhibition at the Tate Britain called Women in Revolt: Art and Activism in the UK 1970-1990, which runs until April before starting a UK tour! ✨

This is the first major survey of feminist art in a major national gallery, exhibiting the art of over 100 women artists and collectives working in the UK 👏

The exhibition presents work by artists who were both shaped by and who vocally contributed to the women’s liberation movement in the UK from the late 1960s. Across six galleries, artists captured activism and protest against systemic inequality against women evoked through disobedient and unruly acts, anger, irony and humour as well as expressions of optimism and hope for a more radical and just society 🙌

Women in Revolt: Art and Activism in the UK 1970-1990 runs at Tate Britain until 7 April 2024. The exhibition will then tour to the National Galleries of Scotland: Modern, Edinburgh, and to The Whitworth at The University of Manchester 💫
