First museum show in the UK for Lisa Brice

Lisa Brice has her first solo institutional exhibition in the United Kingdom with Art Now: Lisa Brice at Tate Britain in London (26 April – 27 August). In this presentation Brice expands her recent use of a near single colour palette to include dynamic reds and deep greens to create large-scale paintings which address the art-historical tradition of the female nude. Shown alongside sketches, drawings and studies, her paintings reference art history with nods to works by historical painters such as Degas, Manet, Picasso and Vallooton. As Tate’s press release states, ‘Brice reverses the traditional portrayal of passive female figures by male artists for male viewers and returns the power to the women involved’.
