Ana Mendieta (1948-1985)
As non-white women, our struggles are two-fold (...) this exhibition points not necessarily to the injustice or incapacity of a society that has not been willing to include us, but more towards a personal will to continue being ‘other’.” (Dialectics of Isolation, 1980)
‘Painting Women Writers’
'Painting Women Writers' celebrates a new series of stunning portraits by the BP award-winning artist Susanne Du Toit which will be exhibited as part of the London Library’s Literary Festival in April, before touring to Farley’s House & Garden later in the year. RAW founder, Sacha Llewellyn, is one of the 20 women writers who has been depicted by the artist and has written the introductory essay to the book.
Curator Sacha Llewellyn explores the art of Winifred Knights, Katie Roiphe looks at writers dying and in the first of our commissioned columns from 2016 New Generation Thinkers – Sarah Jackson from Nottingham Trent University explores touch and frostbite.
