Exhibition of work by American painter, sculptor, photographer, video and performance artist Hannah Wilke (1940-93). Wilke's work is known for exploring issues of feminism, sexuality and femininity. The show brings together works from the early 1960s through to 1987, the first time since Wilke's death in 1993 that her paintings on canvas from the 60s have been exhibited. The colours of these works and the forms depicted, relate to many of Wilke's drawings and sculptures. Other lesser-known intensely coloured small-scale works on paper are shown alongside Wilke's iconic performance photographs including Gestures (Triptych), (1974-76) in which the artist stretches and contorts her face directly at the camera, using her skin as a malleable sculptural medium.
