In The Loop



Fuck Paintings, etc.

(On until Saturday 13th April)

Venture down to the Bomb Factory and get up close and personal with Betty Tompkin’s collection of male and female genitalia. For decades Tompkins has been criticised by her feminist peers for her ‘vulgarity’ and for a time France wouldn’t even let her work through customs. But now her works are finally receiving the praise they so desperately deserve. As TimeOut’s Katie McCabe said: “This kind of aggressive, intensely sexual display is largely given to male artists who are then lauded for it…It’s thrilling to see a woman claiming this space with such graphic art.”
