Women & Water

Our exhibition Women & Water explores the relationship between women and water in the works of 17 women artists, spanning from the early twentieth century to the present day. The exhibition examines how water has been used by artists both as subject matter and artistic medium to reflect the multiplicity of women’s experiences.

Tim Head: How It Is

Sat 28 October 2023 - Sun 21 January

Wolfson College

Overview:
How It Is features artworks in many different media spanning almost all of Tim Head’s artistic career. There are several loans from the college’s Frangenberg Collection which contains 60 works by Tim Head, including the spectacular piece Winter. Two other photographs from the mid-1970s, Ambidextrous and Equilibrium II, are pieces which have been restored in Loughborough University’s specialist photographic unit. Ambidextrous is shown with its colour restored and Equilibrium II is now exhibited for the first time ever. Several other photographs, from the 1980s (all from the collection), are powerful protest-pieces about plastic waste and environmental pollution. Sadly, their messages are even more relevant today.
More recent works include four Slow Life drawings from 2002-4 and a digital embroidery, Siren I, realised this year by the digital embroidery specialist Bee King. What the selection illustrates is the extraordinary fecundity of the artist over many decades, the continued relevance of his concerns, and the potency of his aesthetic achievements.
