Tall Tales: Women Artists' Playful Exploration of the Human Experience

Project: Other


Tall Tales is a national touring exhibition bringing together the work of 17 international women artists who employ the playful use of storytelling techniques in the making of their work. The artists in Tall Tales use storytelling techniques to toy with our perception of myth, reality, the public and private, ideas on difference, as well as question our assumptions. Their works reveal
uncanny scenarios, sometimes pointing to personal stories but more broadly, issues pertinent to society at large and what we might call ‘the human experience’.

The exhibition launches in London this spring (2016) at the Freud Museum London, Swiss Cottage Gallery & Library and the Tavistock Clinic and then tours to Touchstones Rochdale and Rochdale Central Library, Lancashire and then Glasgow Women’s Library (GWL).
