Pillow Talk -conversations with women at Uniqlo TATE Lates

Join SLWA & the WAL at the next Uniqlo Tate Late – we’ll be on Level 2 in the Blavatnik Building

Pillow Talk is a collection of women artists that captures stories giving a visual dialogue on women’s histories, experiences and psyches. Sixty hand painted, printed, appliqued and sewn pillows explore

diverse themes ranging from love, memory and loss, to science and the environment, to politics and war. The pillows are laid out on the floor in the shape of the female symbol and visitors are offered a place to sit, read and have conversations. At its heart, sits a mobile library full of publications, catalogues, magazines and ephemera about women artists, echoing the themes of the pillows and selected by the Women’s Art Library - women being inspired by women. Paying homage to the centenary of women getting the vote in February 1918, Pillow Talk contributes to a collective multi-layered memory of women’s art history and the achievements of contemporary women artists.
