Emma Talbot: The Age / L'Età


Emma Talbot: The Age / L'Età

In The Age / L'Età, Emma Talbot, winner of the 8th Max Mara Art Prize for Women, questions deeply rooted positions of power, governance, attitudes to nature and representations of women through an acutely personal lens. Through painting, drawing, three-dimensional work and animation, Talbot shows us alternative ways of existing in our contemporary world and suggests new modes of being that embrace climate care, feminism and age-positivity.

Including complete installation photography of the commission at Whitechapel Gallery, this beautifully detailed accompanying catalogue includes two new texts by Emma Talbot on The Twelve Labours of Hercules and The Twelve Permaculture Design Principles; new essays by the curators Laura Smith and Wells Fray-Smith; a new essay on permaculture by scholar and writer Macarena Gómez-Barris; and a new interview with the artist.
