Action, Gesture, Paint
Women artists and global abstraction 1940-70

At a time when the world was processing the anxieties of the Second World War and navigating a backdrop of deeply conflicted political climates, artists began to express their concerns in a new form of art that embraced personal and political freedom.

Ironically, the reach of this ‘freedom’ has been limited to the white, male, and Western perspective. The overlooked narrative of gestural abstraction is kaleidoscopic, broad in its geographical breadth, in its definition and, crucially, it is female.

This exhibition catalogue contains colour reproductions of all the works exhibited as well as new essays.
