Virtual Tour of Women to the Fore: Part One
The themes and reflections of Women to the Fore range from the representation of still life, nature, and life cycles, to portraiture and the ways that female-identifying artists have depicted their experiences and their bodies. Join Laura Vookles, Chair of the HRM’s Curatorial Department, and Victoria McKenna-Ratjen, Curatorial Assistant, for part one of a two-part series, an introduction to the more figural of these themes as we look through the lens—or at the mirror—of how some of the artists choose to depict themselves and others. Part two will focus on how other artists in the exhibition represent and relate to the world around them.
