Women and the History of Art: Annie Kevans

Jenkins Johnson Gallery, San Francisco is pleased to present new works by acclaimed British artist Annie Kevans in her first solo exhibition on the West Coast, which runs from October 2 through December 20, 2014. The exhibition will feature new paintings from her recent series Women and the History of Art, comprised of reimagined portraits of female artists who have largely been forgotten by modern audiences. Kevans, a rising art star, was named in Harper's Bazaar's “Forty Under 40” and New Woman's “Brit Hit List,” which described Kevans as the "new Tracey Emin". Concurrent with her solo show at Jenkins Johnson is a traveling exhibition of her series The Muses of Jean Paul Gaultier, a body of work featuring the designer's muses, and which Gaultier himself refers to as “fresh and contemporary”. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier is currently on view at Barbican in London before traveling to the National Galleries in Melbourne and Paris. Also this fall, Kevans’ work will be part of a 4-person exhibition at Marres Center for Contemporary Culture in Maastricht.
