Women In Revolt!, Tate Britain, review ★★★★★

November 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am - April 7, 2024 @ 6:00 pm

In the early 1970s equal pay wasn’t in place for women, nor were there any sex-discrimination laws, and there were no shelters for victims of domestic violence. This bleak picture is set out at the beginning of Tate Britain’s feminist exhibition, which charts how British artists challenged gender norms between 1970 and 1990. It’s an impressive exhibition that starts punchy and continues to land important blows throughout.

Su Richardson’s dungarees have their pockets stuffed with all the tools from the kitchen to the garden, for every role a mother has to fulfil, Gina Birch’s three-minute film of continuous screaming is a cathartic emotional outlet. Jill Posener’s photographs are of defaced advertisements that were targeted for displaying casual, and in some cases outright, sexism, and Rose Finn-Kelcey’s snap of two versions of herself talking to each other on a park bench remarks on how women are pressured to appear as two separate selves in private and public
