Chicago Views

20.11.2012 | Blog | BY:

Riflemaker gallery sets the pace for other galleries when it comes to exhibiting the work of female artists such as Alice Anderson and Penny Slinger. It’s something the gallery manages to do in an unselfconscious – putting the work at the centre of the exhibition rather than the sentiment. So it seems fitting that the gallery should play host to the work and undoubtably large personality of Judy Chicago – her first UK show since 1985. The feminist activist whose work and opinions played a part in the second wave movement in the Sixties and Seventies is still a potent voice in promoting female orientated art work and here influence can be seen on the likes of Tracey Emin and beyond. Make sure you check out the exhibition for a broad view of her work then and now.
