Shifting Subjects

In 2015, I concurrently curated and took part in Shifting Subjects: Contemporary Women Artists Telling the Self Through the Visual Arts, an Abbey Walk Gallery project showing the work of Sarah Lucas and Miranda Whall along with commissioned work by Wendy Elia, Margaret Ashman and myself.

We had a seminar in October 2015 at Leeds City Art Gallery as part of their programme for the British Art Show with Poppy Bowers from Whitechapel Gallery and Alison Rowley from Huddersfield University speaking on work by Sarah Lucas and contemporary women artists’ self-portraiture.

This was also my first opportunity to direct and edit a film. The full piece played in Lincoln’s Usher Gallery for two years as part of a room installed with women and their viewpoint in mind, under curator Ashley Gallant.

This is the trailer for the full version. If you would like access to the full version, please contact me.
