OPENS TOMORROW: Lisa Brice in Tate Britain's free #ArtNow exhibition.
Brice captures women in moments of down-time, engaged in a private world, performing everyday rituals. The artist's paintings, drawings and studies challenge the traditional portrayal of the female nude.

100 years since some women were granted the right to vote, the first statue of a woman in Parliament Square was unveiled today of #MillicentFawcett (1847–1929), a tireless suffragist leader.
The statue was created by artist Gillian Wearing, whose 1992 photograph series can be seen at Tate Britain.

Over 7,000 floor tiles and seven costume designs later, Tate Britain's Duveen Galleries became home to a squash-like character created by #AntheaHamilton, alongside a series of sculptures from Tate's collection, selected by The Squash for their organic forms and colours – their 'squashyness'.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#TheSquash will inhabit the galleries until 7 October 2018, dressed in one of seven costumes that incorporate the colours and shapes of varieties of squash or pumpkin.

Chris Ofili’s ‘No Woman No Cry’ is a tribute to the London teenager #StephenLawrence who was murdered in a racially motivated attack #onthisday in 1993.
In this eight-foot tall painting, each of the tears shed by the woman is a tiny collaged image of Stephen Lawrence’s face, while the words ‘R.I.P. Stephen Lawrence’ are barely visible beneath the layers of paint. Ofili also intended the painting to be read as a universal portrayal of melancholy and grief.

Gwen John trained at the Slade School of Art in London. As a woman in a career still largely dominated by men, including her successful brother Augustus, Gwen had to struggle for recognition. As prophesied by Augustus, Gwen’s reputation has grown and in recent years, has eclipsed that of her brother: ‘50 years from now I shall be known as the brother of Gwen John’ - Augustus John, 1942. Gwen John completed her self-portrait in 1902.

Picasso painted Girl in a Chemise in Paris when he was 25 years old. X-radiography and infrared imaging used to look beneath the surface of the painting revealed that Picasso in fact transformed an earlier painting of a boy to create this profile of a young woman with a few deft brushstrokes. The painting marks a moment of transition in Picasso’s early work, from the dark misery of the ‘blue period’ to the reintroduction of colour and lightening of subject matter known as the ‘rose period’.

Francesca Stern Woodman (1958-1981) was an American photographer best known for her black and white pictures featuring either herself or female models. Many of her photographs show women, naked or clothed, blurred (due to movement and long exposure times), merging with their surroundings, or whose faces are obscured. Her work continues to be the subject of much critical acclaim and attention, years after she died by suicide at the age of 22, in 1981.

Francesca Woodman, House #3, Providence Rhode Island 1975-76, will be on display from 24 May in #LifeinMotion at @tateliverpool. 16-25 year olds can see the exhibition for £5 by joining @TateCollective (click the link in our bio to join). Tate Members go free.
