PhD Project

Mutability, Materiality and Meaning in Abstract Sculpture Made by Women

Through this research project I am surveying sculptural artworks produced by women in Britain between 1977 and 1990. With a particular focus on unusual sculptural materials, the processes of making and ephemeral artworks, I'll be exploring whether or not there exists a gendered aesthetic of making. I'll be further exploring any institutionalised gender-bias within the British art world and there will be a focus on group exhibitions of women's sculptural practice in Britain in this period.
