Nancy Spero: Parade

£150.00

Nancy Spero: Parade

This Limited Edition accompanied the 1998 Nancy Spero Let the Priests Tremble exhibition at Ikon Gallery.

This exhibition opened the brand new Brindley Place gallery for Ikon Gallery.

Nancy Spero is now widely recognised as one of the most important women artists of the 20th century. Drawing inspiration from classical and modern sources, Spero collages and prints images of women, from Greek goddesses to screen icons, onto the walls or on long papyrus-like friezes that scroll around the gallery. After four decades of art making, she continues to create work of extraordinary power.

In Let the Priests Tremble her cast of characters leap, dance and fly up to the roof and back down the walls. Her work celebrates women without denying their struggle.
