William Kentridge, Shirin Neshat and Sue Williamson to feature on Kochi-Muziris Biennale

The 4th edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale has announced the initial list of participating artists, which includes William Kentridge, Shirin Neshat and Sue Williamson. The exhibition opens on 12 December and in the words of its curator Anita Dube aims to act as a “knowledge laboratory” that encourages “the need to listen, think, and learn with each other, particularly voices from the margins.”

Sue Williamson exhibits at National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C.

Works from Williamson’s El Max series form part of the traveling museum exhibition, Women House, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (9 March – 28 May). The exhibition, having been first exhibited at La Monnaie de Paris in France, addresses questions surrounding a woman’s place in culture, probing the patriarchal constructs and conventional ideas about the house or home as a feminine space. With themes ranging from “Desperate Housewife” to “Dollhouse”, Women House emphasises the plurality of artists’ views on the home.
