Whitechapel Gallery have looked over the pond for this one, visiting The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington to form a group show that showcases the role of women in contemporary art. The result: a photography and video display with works from 17 female artists who turn their camera to women, including themselves, with the aim of embracing the female body as a medium for storytelling, affirming identity and reflecting on both the individual and collective experience. Originally conceived to tie in with the inauguration of the first female US President, consider this more of a riposte to the shenanigans going on in Washington and the T man about to take office.
