60 Years continues the Walk through British Art with work by women artists from the 1960s to the present day and includes Boty’s Portrait of Derek Marlowe with Unknown Ladies, recently acquired for Tate Britain.
“This new display is organised into three sections – Structures, Portraits, and Humour and Strangeness. Together the works represent key ideas in recent British art and celebrate its diversity. All works are by women artists.
Women artists have been under-represented in comparison to their male counterparts. This is an opportunity to question the historical bias, with selected pieces from Tate’s collection showing that the story of art can be told by women artists alone. Artists include Tracey Emin, Mona Hatoum, Rachel Whiteread and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
60 Years reflects Tate’s ongoing commitment to increasing representation of women artists across its galleries.
This display has been curated by Sofia Karamani”
