More 20th Century Women

4 Dec 2021–16 Jan 2022


The Gallery of Everything is pleased to announce a re-curation of its exhibition 20th Century Women entitled More Women. The exhibition features new works by artists from the first show, as well as additional artists from Africa, Australia, America and Europe.

More 20th Century Women features artists and makers from a range of disciplines, linked by a common commitment to their craft and a categoric refusal to adapt to the normative requirements of the masculine and caucasian art worlds of their time.

Featured artists include:

Seyni Aya Camara (b 1945, Senegal)
A self-taught ceramic sculptor whose figurative homages to maternity have been celebrated worldwide, most recently in the 2021 13th Gwangju Biennale. 

Lee Godie (1908-1994, America)
A legendary Chicago painter, who sat on the steps of the Art Institute of Chicago to exhibit and explain her portfolio of paintings and photo-booth portraits.

Cecilie Marková (1911-1998, Czech Republic)
A Czech medium, spiritualist and image maker, whose ethereal imaginings of other worlds and beings were a means to communicate with her deceased husband.

Emily Kame Kngwarreye (1910-1996, Australia)
An indigenous art maker from the Utopia Community who commenced a personal practice in her 90s and went on to become one of the Australias foremost painters. 

Henriette Zephir (1920-2012, France)
An artist, medium and visionary whose 30 year commitment to the channeled abstractions of her spirit guide was championed by Jean Dubuffet.
