Christina Ramberg (b.1946 – d.1995) was a central figure in the Chicago Imagist movement, and in first-wave feminist art in the USA. Beyond those contexts her unique work has emerged as increasingly compelling on its own terms, and highly relevant to artists now. This exhibition is the first showing of Ramberg in the UK since her substantial inclusion in the exhibition Who Chicago, curated by Victor Musgrave thirty-five years ago (touring to Glasgow’s Third Eye Centre in 1980). Ramberg is best known for imagery of bound, fetishised hands and bodies, and for schematised torsos that can shade into ‘pure’ diagrammatic abstraction.
