Lisa Brice (b. 1968, Cape Town) addresses the art historical tradition of the female nude. The women in her paintings, drawings and sketches are engaged in everyday activities: smoking, lingering in front of the mirror, dancing, painting. Their pose often references media images or iconic compositions by artists like Manet, Degas and Picasso. Women have for centuries been depicted as passive figures – rendered by and for the male gaze – but Brice shifts the perspective in her work. Brice lives and works in both London and Trinidad. In 2018 she had a solo exhibition at Tate Britain. This will be her first museum exhibition in the Netherlands.
