A painted large female figure with breasts and a vagina, which is held open by hands. A stream of red leaves the opening, within in are a star shaped flower, two birds and a trio of women holding hands.

This significant new survey exhibition of Swedish artist, activist, writer and eco-feminist Monica Sjöö (1938-2005) emphasises Sjöö’s advocacy for gender justice, eco-feminism, matriarchy and social equities – made visible in her artistic practice and activist commitment alike.

The exhibition will be the first institutional solo presentation on Sjöö’s work and will explore the artist’s deep engagement with artistic, political and eco-feminist practice that chimes with many challenges today. The exhibition is curated in partnership with Moderna Museet, Stockholm, where it will be presented from 13 May – 18 October 2023. A monographic catalogue published by Modern Art Oxford and Moderna Museet will accompany the exhibition.
