Curated by Sophie Dutton
Madge Gill was born in Walthamstow and spent most of her years living in East London. A self-taught, visionary artist, she created meticulous artworks, many of which she attributed to Myrninerest, her spirit-guide that she came to embody. This landmark exhibition in her home town brings together drawings, newly uncovered large-scale embroideries, textiles and archival objects, many of which have never been exhibited before.
Evening Standard article on the exhibition 5th March 2019 – A self-taught artist who hoarded her works under the bed in her east London home is the subject of a new exhibition only a few streets from where she was born.
