Abstract

Exhibition: The Time is Right for... Exhibition, Summerhall, Edinburgh, 2 August - 24 September 2017Summerhall, Edinburgh, 2 August - 24 September 2017
Artists began to work with video from the late 1960s as a more accessible alternative to film. Although many of these artists are well known today, there are several women artists who experimented with video in the early years who have since been forgotten or marginalised. As a result many women artists’ fundamental and pioneering experiments remain under-researched and very little critical writing about them has been published.The title of this exhibition comes from Marikki Hakola piece The Time is Right For… (1984). The show features works from the 1970s & 1980s by several European women artists that engage with the concept of the artist as promoter of dialogue, openness, cultural exchange and peace.Works included in the exhibition are: The Time is Right For… (1984) by Marikki Hakola, Women Soldiers (1984) by Elaine Shemilt, Appendice per una supplica (1972) by Ketty La Rocca and Giovanni Arnolfini and his young wife by Giny Vos.
