TJ Boulting is delighted to present In The Company Of, an exhibition exploring the relationship between historic and contemporary women artists, curated by Katy Hessel, founder of the Instagram-based blog The Great Women Artists.
In The Company Of will showcase three historic female artists, Barbara Hepworth, Lee Miller, and Alice Neel, alongside twelve dynamic contemporary female artists. The exhibition aims to highlight the legacy of Hepworth, Miller, and Neel and how the impact of their work still resonates with artists working today. By comparing their shared artistic language and creating a dialogue between them, it will also put the contemporary artists’ work into an historical context.
“My aim with The Great Women Artists has always been to celebrate women artists from across the world working in every era across a variety of mediums. This exhibition will put the account into a real-life context, not only shining a light on some of the most exciting women working across painting, sculpture and photography today, but showing the constant conversation with the women who came before them. It is important to recognise the enduring legacy of the women who were so often overlooked by art history, and provide an alternative insight to the subject” – Katy Hessel
Showcased artists include Juno Calypso, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Maisie Cousins, Charlotte Edey, Jessie Makinson,Helen A Pritchard, Stephanie Quayle, Anne Ryan, Boo Saville, Hrafnhildur Arnardottir aka Shoplifter, Antonia Showering and CarolineWalker.
