An online exhibition of the work of textile artist Su Richardson, titled Wonderwoman. Richardson is a pioneer of British Feminist Art and contributor to two important art groups of the 1970s – the mail art project ‘Feministo’ and the feminist art collective ‘Fenix.’ The Postal Art Event started as a collaborative project to connect women in different cities through exchange of artworks in the post. It gradually evolved into the ground-breaking project ‘Feministo’ and a series of exhibitions and installations around the UK, including Portrait of the Artist as Housewife at the ICA, London in 1977. Richardson, quoted in Alexandra Kokoli’s The Feminist Uncanny (2010) explained,“Look, aren’t there any housewives here who want to make some art, and who are fed up with all this fine art business? Aren’t there any of you making things at home that you’d like to show each other?”

And I have just found this – although it is in Lille its putting textile art out there.
