Description

The Inking Woman is a ground-breaking collection that celebrates the work and talent of over 150 women cartoonists and comic artists in Britain, from the eighteenth century to the present day.

Witty, insightful and defiant, with eyes firmly focused on the world around them, these women cartoonists are gathered together for the first time. From Mary Darly in the 1760s, the Suffragettes and Annie Harriet Fish in the First World War, to today's new generation of cartoonists, they are here to be discovered, rediscovered and, above all, to be enjoyed.

The collection includes caricatures, jokes, editorial and strip cartoons, on prints, postcards, comics, zines, graphic novels and digital comics, covering all genres and topics.

Created by Nicola Streeten and Cath Tate, this event will introduce you to a glorious collection of cartoon and comic art images that not only salute the women artists who made them but reclaims the archive for posterity and stakes its rightful place in art history.

Organised in partnership with Ikon Gallery.
