Virtual Tour of Women to the Fore: Part Two
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 the second part of this series, focusing on how artists in the exhibition represent and relate to the world around them. We’ll be delving into the deeper meanings and implications of still lifes and the built environment, as well as unusual uses of everyday materials.
