A landmark exhibition of feminist art opened last week at Tate Britain in London (runs until 7 April 2024). Showcasing work by over 100 women artists and collectives living and working in the UK, this is the first major survey of its kind. Women in Revolt! Art and Activism in the UK 1970 - 1990 includes painting, drawing, photography, textiles, printmaking, film, sculpture and archival materials created during a time of extreme social, economic and political change. As well as celebrating the work of well-known artists such as Sonia Boyce, Lubaina Himid, Helen Chadwick and Margaret Harrison, Women in Revolt! shows women artists, who despite long careers, are not as well known as they should be.
The exhibition does an excellent job showing how interconnected networks of women used radical ideas and rebellious methods to make an invaluable contribution to British culture. The Women’s Liberation Movement first made a major public impact in 1970 when American comedian Bob Hope hosted Miss World at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Over 100 million people worldwide watched Bob Hope on TV being flour-bombed by protesters from the Women’s Liberation Art Group, co-founded by artist Margaret Harrison, who wore a racy black plastic bra with orange fur nipples for the occasion.
The exhibition is presented chronologically, starting with the Miss World protests and the formation of the Brixton Black Women’s Group. The 1970s saw a dramatic evolution of the relationship between women, work, and the domestic environment. Frustration with an expectation of domestic labor is the subject of work by Bobby Baker and photography by Alexis Hunter. Sculptures by Rita McGurn and Elizabeth Radcliffe offer glamorous imagined images of the self, using techniques like crochet: often under appreciated because of its connection to domestic labor.
The 1980s continued with women artists inventing headline-grabbing ways to call out the patriarchy. In 1981, when US nuclear missiles were stored at Greenham Common, Berkshire, a group of women established a peace camp that would last for two decades. Margaret Harrison’s installation, recreated for the Tate Show, references the fences of the Greenham Common military base.
The exhibition explores the creative impact of punk and post-punk with collage, photography and film from artists and musicians like Marianne Elliott-Said (A.K.A Poly Styrene), The Neo Naturists, and Gina Birch. The consideration of sex in the practice of artists is also explored, from Cosey Fanni Tutti’s performance work to Jill Westwood’s Potent Female, 1983. Protest led by women is a core theme throughout the show. Banners, posters, and journals from the Greenham Common and Section 28 protests, and anti-racism and AIDS

Each December, visitors from around the world descend upon South Florida for the annual Miami Art Week. Over the past few years, the region has also had an influx of new residents. An array of restaurants, boutiques and other businesses have opened alongside the community’s longtime favorites, with both the new and the old appealing as much to out-of-towners as they do to Miamians.
This exclusive partnership was jointly developed by the two companies to provide tailored protection for any global destination, with product offerings that travellers can dynamically bundle and unbundle, providing them with additional confidence and new revenue streams for SAS.
It’s not a stretch to say that The Alfond Inn at Rollins, a boutique hotel in the heart of historic Winter Park, Florida, is unlike any other hotel in the country. Currently celebrating its 10th anniversary, the property unveiled a $36 million expansion last week, including a lavish spa, a chic Café, and 71 additional rooms, totaling 183 guestrooms. A light-filled seven-story atrium connects the expansion with the original building. Guestrooms in the original building have undergone complete upgrades with contemporary interiors, and the existing lobby, library, and bar have also been renovated.
Some of the coolest outdoor spaces in the American West are now open for business as part of a new concept from Open Venues—think Airbnb, but for rare and unique venues. An ochre-hued sandstone cave in Moab might be the ideal setting for your rehearsal dinner or maybe opt for a lavender meadow near the Mogollon Rim in northern Arizona. The platform—which is the first of its kind—connects users with unique historic properties and outdoor landscape settings for hosting everything from a corporate event to a private wedding. The current collection of 25 venues is concentrated in the American West, but plans are in the works to take the offerings nationwide. Below are some of the coolest options in their portfolio:
