Gwen John, A Lady Reading 1909–11. Tate

Hear from Tate staff and volunteers in a series of talks exploring gender and representation in the Tate collection

See artworks in Tate Britain's collection displays from a range of different perspectives as we celebrate Women's History Month and the centenary of the first British women gaining the right to vote in 1918.

Throughout March and beyond, Tate staff and volunteers will share their personal responses to works on display, exploring the role of women as both subject and agent in British art over the centuries.

The talk meets in front of the artwork – please refer to gallery signage or speak to a member of staff to confirm location.
