Honor Roberts, Responding to Jenny Saville 2022

We would like to thank all those involved in the hugely successful UG Women Artists exhibition December 2022-January 2023. 

Wonderful work by First year Art History students inspired by women and non-binary artists.

Some students took inspiration directly from a single artist. Others used the work of many artists as a springboard for creation. Students responded to the works through image, audio, touch and text.
