‘SEXUAL WARFARE’, GOLDSMITHS CCA
A pioneer figure of the Women’s Art movement in 1970’s Britain is having her work showcased this week. Alexis Hunter (1948 – 2014) worked across painting and photography, focusing on the violence within capitalism’s abuse of gender stereotypes and sexuality. Sexual Warfare, based in Goldsmiths CCA,is a grid of photographs and text, with her hands showing different ways of killing a male partner. Her artwork in the 1970s was designed to spread feminist messages to the public, rather than just people interested in art. 4Life represents the stages of life, from birth to death, and ‘the bit in the middle’. GLUE is a film that delivers a comic insight into our broken individuality by using confessional monologues and dialogues. The exhibition is open until Sunday February 4.
