Join us for Launch Party, 6th October 2021 from 5.30-8.30pm to encounter Millman’s recent body of work, which draws upon her exploration of ageing and dementia and highlights the role of elderly and cares in society. Having grown from personal experience of loss, her work studies the damage that time imposes on human body and mind, how it erases language, memories and consciousness. The artist is keen to partner with relevant organsations to raise awareness of this tragic disease. Please join us for this unique exhibition in atmospheric Crypt Gallery showcasing Millman’s sculptures, installations, media and paintings.
Featuring over 100 works including paintings, collage, drawings, sculpture and etchings, this exhibition shines a light into the life and art of this prominent figure within the contemporary British art world.
Portuguese-born and London-based, Rego is particularly known for her paintings and prints based on storybooks and celebrated for her unique representation of female subjects.
