This book is a powerful new interpretation of British art from an intersectional feminist perspective, from one of Britain’s greatest writers. Bernardine Evaristo’s Feminism is part of the Tate Britain: Look Again series of books exploring the National Collection of British Art, reframing the collection in new ways, relevant to today’s audiences.
In her own words, Evaristo says of the book:
‘Art museums have long drawn me into their spaces. The infinite possibilities of the language of art opens me up to methods of communication quite unlike my own. I am fascinated by the most interesting and adventurous artists, who are surely among the most innovative thinkers on the planet. I am in awe of their talent and endless inventiveness, and my imagination is nourished by theirs. I am challenged to think differently about how we might understand, recreate, reshape, re-imagine life itself – animate, inanimate, spirit. My senses are stimulated, my emotions stirred, my brain whirrs away in the background and I feel very much alive.
When I was invited to write this book, my first time writing about art, I immediately knew that I would turn my attention on women and womxn (to include non-binary people) of colour in British art because, similar to the story throughout the arts, either as creator or curator, we haven’t been very visible. This book is personal – about the art I’ve seen, and the art I’ve loved – and my interpretation of the art in the national collection and beyond, from an intersectional feminist perspective.’
