Saturday 7th September — Exhibition Tour and Artist's Talk — Richard Saltoun Gallery


1pm — 111 Great Titchfield Street, W1W 6RY ELF members are invited on a tour of Richard Saltoun Gallery's forthcoming exhibition of the work of Alexis Hunter and Jo Spence. The tour will be accompanied by an exclusive talk from Spence's long term collaborator Terry Dennett. The exhibition brings together important and rarely seen feminist work from the 70s and 80s. Hunter's series of Xeroxes and photographs are displayed alongside a selection of Spence's Phototherapy works. Active at a time when women artists were underrepresented in the art world, Hunter and Spence used their work to act out personal traumas and shift gender assumptions and cultural stereotypes. Both used art as a tool for active social and cultural change, often utilizing the look of amateur snapshot photography — the camera became an instrument of democratic action. Dennett will be discussing his collaborative work with Jo Spence exclusively for ELF.
