The Time of Our Lives focuses on the contribution that drawing made to the cause of feminist activism from the 1980s and explores its continued relevance as a form of radical practice for artists working today. The exhibition looks at its versatility as a medium and the ways that it has been instrumental in consciousness raising around issues such as reproductive justice, sexism, racism and other forms of oppression.

Beginning with drawings made by Monica Ross in the 1980s, the exhibition will include works by Sutapa Biswas, Sonia Boyce, Kate Davis, Margaret Harrison, Claudette Johnson, Jade de Montserrat, Lizzy Rose and Soheila Sokhanvari. The exhibition includes new commissions by Kate Davis and Jade de Montserrat. The exhibition, accompanying events programme and publication is supported by a Curatorial Research Grant from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. It will coincide with Women in Revolt, a concurrent exhibition at Tate Britain.

‘and we’ll make art out of the time of our lives 

that is always between one job, one role and another’ 

– Monica Ross
