60 years. Walk Through British Art
22.04.2019 - 01.04.2020 (exact end date of the exhibition is not yet known)

60 Years continues the Walk through British Art with work by women artists from 1960s to the present day

This new display represents key ideas in recent British art and celebrates its diversity through women artists. It sets up dialogues across generations around three broad and overlapping themes: spaces and structures, our relationship to the idea of home, and playing with fictional identities to challenge social stereotypes.

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

Sixty Years is at Tate Britain, London, until April 2020
