Pioneer of British and European feminist art, Margaret Harrison (Wakefield - England, 1940) questions notions of gender, identity, politics, social class, domestic violence and exploitation of women’s labor and sexuality. Over her more than 40 years working as an artist, Harrison has reported local and international cultural and political issues throughout a variety of media including drawings, oil paintings, watercolors and large installations. She uses iconography, pop art and consumer brands to reflect upon female, male and transgendered identity, often subverting with humor gender roles that the society has assigned.

She has had solo shows in institutions such as the New Museum in New York, the Middlesbourgh Institute of Modern in England and Azkuna Centroa in Bilbao. She has participated in many group shows such as Tate Modern and Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. In this exhibition we will show some recent works on paper in which we see two of the most used techniques by the artist.
