Women in Abstraction

Where: Carclew Ballroom Gallery
Curator: Olivia Kubiak
Artists: Imogen Porteous, Emma Sullivan

Women In Abstraction is curated by Carclew's Curator in Residence Olivia Kubiak and features artworks by Carclew's Artists in Residence Imogen Porteous, Emma Sullivan, utilising Carclew’s Ballroom Gallery.

We don’t often hear about great female abstract artists. Abstraction developed during the modern period and, as Griselda Pollock writes in Modernity and the Spaces of Femininity, ‘all those canonised as the initiators of modern art [were] men.’ Emma Sullivan and Imogen Porteous will deconstruct traditional notions of femininity through abstraction, challenging the hierarchy of this seemingly patriarchal style. They aim to invert the female gaze so that she looks inwards rather than outwards.
