Scottish Women Artists Transforming Traditions


Scottish Women Artists Transforming Tradition brings together exciting historical, modern and contemporary works from the Fleming Collection that span over one hundred years of social transformation, innovation and individualism.

This exhibition presents fifty engaging works, which address a wide and eclectic range of themes. Scottish Women Artists focuses on paintings, drawings, assemblages and photography that explore human relationships, encounters with places, structural forms and recognisable objects.

With works by mid-twentieth century greats, such as Joan Eardley, Margot Sandeman and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham shown alongside contemporary artists Caroline Walker and Sekai Machache, Scottish Women Artists aspires to serve as a ‘curatorial corrective’ for the historic absence of women artists in academic narratives and artistic institutions.
