Detraction: An exhibition by Tamsin Green


Artist talk – RSVP

An exhibition of work by MADA Lecturer Tamsin Green. Tamsin’s work is based on the place of the feminine in the history of art and theory: where women are often the under-acknowledged material support for artistic and literary products.

The immediate subject of Detraction is the famous allegory of desire found in The Large Glass (The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors) by Marcel Duchamp. Tamsin transforms this work horizontally, materially and ideologically and the result is a three metre wide ink on silk print that will be suspended in the Eildon Gallery, along with a number of other complementary works.
