Specialists Speak: Women Art Dealers on Feminist Artists

Monday, April 9th, 2018

In honour of International Women’s Day last month, Invaluable invited seven members of AWAD to choose their favourite artists whose work addresses issues of feminism.

Georgina Bexon, International Advisor on Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art, and member of our London Chapter, chose Mithy Sen:

Born in West Bengal and now living and working in New Delhi, for more than two decades Mithy Sen has been at the forefront of a generation of contemporary female artists questioning and negotiating feminist issues in South Asia. Sen’s work moves with ease, and spontaneously, between genres – drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, performance, installation, video, (not to mention that she is also a poet) and it is our loss that her name is not better known in the West. She enjoys wide visibility in India, and also has a growing international profile with solo exhibitions and residencies in London, Berlin, Vienna, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Tokyo.

Other members who took part include:

JoAnne Artman

Geneviève Lévesque

Galia Kirilova

Joanna Bryant

Kristina Huntington

Susan Mumford

Marine Tanguy

Joanna Bryant Projects presents September Solos in Clerkenwell

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Joanna Bryant Projects presents September Solos, two consecutive exhibitions in Clerkenwell showcasing artists Alan Franklin (14-18 September) and Chris Sims (21-25 September). For more information, contact Joanna Bryant.

See Saw – Alan Franklin (14-18 September)

Private View, Tuesday 13 September 6pm – 8.30pm

A playful and inventive exploration of materials and processes seeking the unfamiliar in the familiar. Franklin refers to his drawings as flat sculptures putting the focus on their materiality and the processes by which they are made. Equally in this exhibition his sculptures might be seen as three dimensional drawings. Ideas and thoughts that crisscross in a conversation with each other.

Curated by Joanna Bryant

Julian Page will also be showing works by Marcelle Hanselaar in the downstairs gallery.

Chris Sims (21-25 September)
Private View, Tuesday 20 September 6pm – 8.30pm

A solo show of new work by the contemporary English abstract painter, Chris Sims. Sims uses colour and instinctive mark making to evoke or capture a moment in time in the rural English landscape. He has a growing collector’s market in the UK and his paintings are often considered to be reminiscent of the St Ives painter Peter Lanyon.

Curated by Joanna Bryant

Julian Page will also be showing works by Alexander Massouras in the upstairs gallery.
