Freddie Robins is exhibiting Bad mother, on loan from the Private Collection of Rosalind Davis and Justin Hibbs.
If Not Now, When? Generations of Women in Sculpture in Britain, 1960 – 2022 will invite audiences to consider issues of gender and time in order to suggest new narratives about sculpture by women in Britain during this period, looking at lives, work and social change. The exhibition is the outcome of a two-year research project, Hepworth’s Progeny, guided by an Advisory Board of Griselda Pollock, Lorna Green, The Hepworth Wakefield’s curator Eleanor Clayton, sculptors Sokari Douglas Camp and Jill McKnight, and independent art Historian Dr. Alice Correia. The exhibition was co-curated by Dr Anna Douglas and Dr Kerry Harker, organised by the Hepworth Wakefield. The project revisited research into women artists working in the expanding field of sculpture undertaken in the late 1980s by Green in her M.Phil thesis, The Position and Attitudes of Contemporary Women Sculptors in Britain 1987-89, at The University of Leeds. Selected from the nearly 320 artists who responded to the 1988 and 2022 surveys, the exhibition will present work by 29 female sculptors.
