Tate announces upcoming exhibitions to mark #5WomenArtists campaign
Tate has announced five large-scale solo exhibitions of women artists currently in development, all set to open at its galleries in 2020-21. Tate Britain will celebrate two of the most important figurative painters of their generations. In May 2020 the gallery will open a major survey of the work of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, followed in 2021 by a career-spanning retrospective of Paula Rego’s paintings, drawings and prints. Exhibitions at Tate Modern will highlight the works of Magdalena Abakanowicz and Maria Bartuszová in its 2020 programme. Tate St Ives will stage a major exhibition dedicated to the multisensory work of South Korean artist Haegue Yang.
