“Power relations, sexuality, and mythology are prevalent threads running through the work of Paula Rego (1935)”. The Portuguese-British artist has spent much of her career focusing on depicting and discussing the topics of women’s rights and abortion. She is a critic of the anti-abortion movement, using the theme of women and abortion as a focal point in many of her artworks.
On the 7th of December, we will go on an excursion to visit the exhibition Paula Rego, at the Kunstmuseum, in The Hague. This hosts the biggest overview of Paula Rego’s work to date, in collaboration with Tate Britain. Our professor Stephen Turner, lecturer of the course Artivism, will be guiding us and will discuss the exhibition with us afterwards.
