ReFrame

‘ReFrame’ –Interrogating representations of women and the portrayal of ‘women’s work’ is the upcoming exhibition of our ex-Program Director Caroline Broadhead and her daughter Maisie Broadhead, at Manchester Art Gallery, opening on the 20th of October.

Working independently, they have made ambitious new works in response to historic representations of femininity in paintings at Manchester Art Gallery. The new works focus on how the pictorial conventions of such paintings and their elaborate frames affect our perceptions of the women depicted. Their aim is to provoke a dialogue about past and present, content and surrounding and to interrogate representations of women and the portrayal of ‘women’s work’.
