A pioneer of British and European feminist art, Margaret Harrison questions notions of gender, identity, politics, social class, domestic violence and labour and sexual exploitation of women. Over her more than 40 years working as an artist, Harrison has reported local and international cultural and political issues throughout a variety of media including drawings, oil paintings, watercolors and large scale installations. She uses iconography, pop art and consumer brands to reflect upon female, male and transgendered identity, often subverting with humor gender roles that society has assigned.
She has had solo shows in institutions such as the New Museum in New York, Frac Lorraine, the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern in England and Azkuna Zentroa in Bilbao. She has also participated in many group shows in art institutions such as Tate Modern and Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
