Women in Revolt! Art and Activism in the UK 1970–1990

National Galleries Scotland: Modern Two

Be inspired by stories of collaboration, creativity and rebellion. This major survey of feminist art celebrates the women who challenged and changed the face of British culture. Discover the powerful and often provocative work of over 100 artists and collectives forged against the backdrop of seismic social, economic and political change over two decades. 

Women in Revolt! explores key themes and issues, such as the Women’s Liberation Movement, the peace movement, the visibility of Black and South Asian women artists, Section 28, and the AIDS pandemic through a whole range of media. 

Exhibition organised by Tate Britain in collaboration with National Galleries of Scotland and The Whitworth, The University of Manchester.
