Women Artists: Act 1


Currently running until Sunday, 19 January 2020

Image of Women Artists: Act 1

The 2018 celebrations to mark 100 years since (some) women were first able to vote in the UK helped to focus attention on the representation of women artists in public art collections. Most have significantly less art by women than the do by men. Many are now actively promoting the display and purchase of work by living women artists in an attempt to redress the balance. This exhibition of work from the public collections of Bradford and Oldham includes Arpana Caur, Emilie Taylor, Laura Ford, Aneela Majid, Kanak Chanpa Chakam, Kerry Jameson, Fareha Zeba, Josephine de Vasconcellos and J. Chuhan. In partnership with Gallery Oldham.

Opening Notes:

Tuesday to Friday 10am - 4pm
Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holiday Mondays 11am - 4pm

Bradford Museums and Galleries are proud to announce the introduction of AppEar; a new system to help the visually impaired explore our collections. This year we have been working closely with RNIB and Bradford Talking Media to develop the use of the audio PenFriend devices, which are already widely used within the visually impaired community. Visitors can now borrow a PenFriend from our reception desk to hear visual descriptions of the surrounding displays. For more information on the introduction of the AppEar system please contact Kirsty Gaskin tel 01535 618231 email kirsty.gaskin@bradford.gov.uk
