Pioneering Women Artists at Frieze Masters
Galleries across the fair will showcase women artists who have changed the course of art history
Frieze Masters 2019 will be an exceptional opportunity to view and acquire works by ground-breaking women artists of the 20th century. Highlights include:
Lisson Gallery (London) will celebrate the Susan Hiller’s innovative, multi-faceted career of almost half a century, with a solo booth exploring themes of domesticity, family and gender roles, and featuring some of the artist’s earliest known works, many on show for the first time.
Turner Prize-winning artist Rachel Whiteread’s solo presentation with Luhring Augustine (New York) will be focused on important early works, both drawings and sculptures.
A solo exhibition of Louise Nevelson (Gio Marconi) with a selection of sculptures and collages, dating from 1955 until the late eighties. Louise Nevelson was an emblematic figure of twentieth-century art and distinguished herself in the international art scene through her search for a universal language.
kamel mennour (Paris) will present a solo retrospective of Gina Pane (1939-1990) – a member of the 1970s Body Art movement in France, called "Art corporel" – with three large-scale installations: Aqua Alta Pali Venezia (1968-1970), Stripe Rake (1969), and Voyage sentimental - Partition pour une tablette de chocolat (1983-1984).
A solo exhibition of oils on canvas by the Swiss artist Verena Loewensberg (1912-1986), co-founder of the Concrete Art Movement in Zurich (The Mayor Gallery, London).
