Women’s art practice is rich in disruptions, side tracks, blurred boundaries and multiple identities- all in a day’s work and all ways we describe our postmodern experience of culture. Where would we be without acknowledging this energy in our lives as women artists and thinkers? The title ‘Desperate Artwives’ implies frankness, humour, anguish and ambition and suggests a fascinating and timely project.

…a group of female artists have formed a fledgling movement known as Desperate Artwives – an ironic twist on the title of the hit American drama – to continue exhibiting and working…Amy Dignam, the founder of the project, who graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design, has been overwhelmed by the response to her Twitter and Facebook appear, which she says has prompted a movement, website and now this collection.
