Morreau was a key organiser in the Women’s Images of Men exhibition at the ICA in 1980, a substantial contribution to the ICA’s long history of providing a space for feminist exhibitions and talks; a legacy that continues to the present, most recently with Women Working Collectively, what’s your value? panel discussion in July 2015.

It is this tradition of the collaborative feminist exhibition that we wish to extend in our own re-presentation of Morreau’s work. The exhibition will primarily be a retrospective of Morreau’s work and life, however in order to establish a relationship between Morreau and contemporary artists, we feel it would be of great interest to hold a series of events in which artists, curators, writers etc., can react to and discuss the work in the exhibition. These events will be held to not only highlight the impact of Morreau’s work, but also create opportunities for other artists to directly engage with the work in a public forum.
