Tate Britain will host the exhibition 60 Years exploring the role of female artists in British art of the past six decades, Artguide reports, citing the Guardian and Tate Britain.

Galleries displaying British art since the 1960s until the present day will be reorganised, and artworks by men will be be replaced by works by female artists, including Bridget Riley, Rachel Whiteread and Monster Chetwynd.

The exhibition will feature 60 works by 30 artists from the Tate collection. Alex Farquharson, the director of Tate Britain, said: “The recent histories of the Turner prize, Tate’s exhibition programme and contemporary acquisitions reflect the critical role of women in the history of British art over the last 60 years.”

The show curated by Sofia Karamani will open on April 22, 2019, and run for at least a year. In 2019, Tate will host a few more exhibitions devoted to female artists – monographic shows by Natalia Goncharova, Dora Maar and Dorothea Tanning at Tate Modern; Sol Calero at Tate Liverpool; Anna Boghiguian and Otobong Nkanga at Tate St Ives and Rose Finn-Kelcey and Joanna Piotrowska at Tate Britain.
