Tina Keane’s SHE acquired for The British Council collection

April 2019

Tina Keane’s iconic, declamatory neon wall sculpture SHE has been acquired from England & Co for the collection of The British Council. This work was initially conceived in 1977 for Keane’s pioneering, multi-media performance event, SHE, at the Hayward Gallery in 1978, and produced as an edition in 2018 by England & Co with the artist and her original fabricator. Keane’s practice reflects her feminist perspective and explorations of gender roles, sexuality and political concerns.
