31 Women channels the pioneering spirit of the exhibition at Peggy Guggenheim’s New York gallery in 1943.


Featuring artists within Guggenheim’s circle, 31 Women will combine work by successive generations of practitioners from the 1940s to the present day.

Taking cues from the transitional moment when Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism co-existed in 1940s New York, two thematic threads will be traced. The first privileging artistic positions embracing the psychological, instinctual and erotic, or which depend on notions of chance, the uncanny and accidental. The second establishing a continuity of formalist inquiry incorporating multiple modes of abstract mark making and production. The exhibition further presents a group of artists with a strong presence in London, offering an engaging survey of important figures working or exhibiting in the city today.

Participating artists include Eileen Agar, Laura Aldridge, Cornelia Baltes, Claire Barclay, Rana Begum, Eva Berendes, Helen Chadwick, Angela de la Cruz, Tracey Emin, Lydia Gifford, Celia Hempton, Allison Katz, Lauren Keeley, Ella Kruglyanskaya, Mary Martin, Cornelia Parker, Aimée Parrott, Mary Ramsden, Bridget Riley, Eva Rothschild, Katie Schwab, Jo Spence, Tyra Tingleff, Patricia Treib, Alison Turnbull, Phoebe Unwin, Gillian Wearing, Rachel Whiteread, Clare Woods, Rose Wylie and Catherine Yarrow.
