Event Information

It is not necessary to book in advance for MAC's galleries – however we will keep reviewing this, so please check online or call us before visiting. Please read our new Visitor Guidelines before arriving at MAC.

Women's Work is Caroline Walker’s most comprehensive exhibition to date. It examines the often unseen jobs performed by women, such as tailors and chambermaids and viewed from the side lines in their otherwise invisible worlds. 

Comprising of preparatory studies, small and large-scale paintings, Women’s Work provides a unique insight into Walker’s artistic processes as a painter with an intuitive understanding of her subjects.

Publicly funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by players of People’s Postcode Lottery through Postcode Culture Trust. With special thanks to GRIMM Gallery, Amsterdam.

Women's Work: Interviews

MAC has worked with journalist Maria Margaronis to produce a series of personal interviews with some of the women featured in Caroline Walker's paintings. The interviews document the women's experiences and the journeys that have led them to roles they now undertake.
