Rose Frain Survey Works: Book Launch and Preview, Saturday 7th September, 2pm to 4pm
Visual artist Rose Frain is publishing a survey book of her work in September 2019. Glasgow Women’s Library is the first of three UK venues to launch the publication, with each event accompanied by an exhibition showing selected works and new works from the artist’s extensive practice. Join us for the launch of Rose Frain Survey Works this Saturday.
This book features 18-20 of the artist’s major projects, citing stylistic and conceptual developments; with critical essays, full chronology and bibliography. It is edited by Jane Warrilow, designed by James Brook, and published by Sissy Graffiti. You can find more information on the exhibition here.
“Rose Frain has a fascinating oeuvre that covers several decades. The project is extremely relevant in the context of significant women artists and apt too since the themes of her work are so acutely relevant today.”
– Adele Patrick, GWL
