British Women Cartoon and Comic Artists
26 April – 23 July 2017
‘Why are there no women cartoonists?’ Well, actually, there are – lots of them. The Inking Woman showcases the work of 100 British Cartoon and Comic Artists revealing a wealth of women’s wit and insight spanning 250 years. A wide-ranging selection includes prints from the 18th century, caricatures, joke, editorial and strip cartoons from magazines and newspapers, postcards, comics, zines, graphic novels and digital comics.
The exhibition – the largest of its kind to date – demonstrates that women have always had a wicked sense of humour and a perceptive view of the world. Some of the cartoons will be familiar, but there are also forgotten gems from the past.
