Temporary Display

While we prepare to move into our permanent space, we have a selection of items on display, representing both different aspects of the collection and project highlights.

From the Latin subvertere meaning ‘to overthrow’, subversion is a process by which the values and principles of a system in place are contradicted or reversed in an attempt to disrupt the established social order.  And this is exactly what these artists are doing … all the items in this display have been selected to highlight how women challenge the norms of photography, the art world and society.

Opening times are 10:30 – 16:00 on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.  For other days and times by arrangement, simply email hello@hundredheroines.org to book a slot.

A selection of objects from The Collection that reference some of our core themes, from a 1960s newspaper article about the domination of men in the portrait world to a collage from Helen Chadwick. We also have a vintage Wunderkammer filled with items and stories relating to the displays.

The start of our new events programme for the summer – plenty more in the pipeline, which will be added to the site once confirmed.

The Great Train Tapestry

The completed tapestry adorns the walls of our new space – and looks magnificent.  Thanks to all involved and to GWR and Canon for their generous support with the project.

Living Archive

The archive of Elisabeth Buchmeyer-Lewis (1935 – 2018). The digitisation and cataloguing is a work-in-progress, and we discover new items every day.
