In the year celebrating 100 years since some women got the vote, Burgh House and Hampstead Museum will be celebrating the women of Hampstead with the opening of this new exhibition.
Featuring the women artists in our collection, this exhibition will also explore the life and work of the many influential women who have lived and thrived in this historic village. While it is well known that many famous figures have lived in Hampstead, this exhibition aims to highlight the voices of women who came to Hampstead to fulfill their greatest potential. From writers and poets to artists, politicians and medical researchers, Hampstead has been home to a huge variety of incredible women. This exhibition will bring together paintings, photographs, sculpture and historic objects to explore the fascinating stories of the women of Hampstead, from the Victorian period to the present day.
Look out for events running alongside this exhibition.
If you would like to get involved, we are looking for artistic contributions to our zine which we will produce as part of this project. The Zine will include creative works, essays and art pieces related to the exhibition and expressing the experience of being a woman. For more info and to submit a piece, email firstname.lastname@example.org, ideally by the end of October.
