Liberties presents a snapshot of the evolving conversations that have contributed to the mapping of a woman’s place in British society through work by 24 artists.  Film, photography, sculpture, performance and painting reflect personal and political issues and changes in art practice in the 40 years since the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act in the UK.

The curators do not presume to have surveyed the past 40 years of women’s art practice, but to consider the intervening years since a significant equalitarian law was introduced, and to remind ourselves of what has been fought and won over the years, and what there is still to do.
