Ellen Gallagher is one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists to have emerged from North America since the mid-1990s. She brings together imagery from myth, nature, art and social history to create complex works in a wide variety of media, including painting, drawing, relief, collage, print, sculpture, film and animation. From 1 May to 1 September 2013 Tate Modern presents the UK’s first major solo exhibition of her work, providing a unique opportunity to explore her twenty-year career.
Gallagher came to international prominence by subversively combining a minimalist aesthetic of intricate repetition with an iconography drawn in part from caricatured lips and eyes of black vaudeville minstrels.
