Sexual Warfare is a posthumous exhibition of Alexis Hunter's work from the 1970s.
This will be the first solo presentation of her work in the UK since 2006, and first in London since 1981. An influential figure in the feminist art movement in Britain in the 1970s, Hunter is best known for her staged photographic works in which she used the medium as a tool to manipulate normative power dynamics within society through gender role play and fetishised objects. Her images draw upon the violence within capitalism’s abuse of gender stereotypes and sexuality for the pursuit of profit. This exhibition will show a number of key works, bringing her acerbic critique into dialogue with the contemporary moment and reinforcing her importance as an artist and a feminist.
