TATE stepped our collection up a notch by creating the new LOQI Museum Collection of bags, bumbags, laptop sleeves and zip pockets. Female artists from the 1950's onwards: Louise Bourgeois. Guerrilla Girls. Jean Spencer. Exclusive to the TATE are Chila Kumari Singh Burman, Lubaina Himid, Saloua Raouda Choucair.
Guerrilla Girls is an anonymous group of female artists devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world. The collective are on a mission to bring gender and racial inequality into focus within the arts community. Keep an eye open for their billboards around town and help spread the message on our tote bags to get the word out there, on the streets!
Jean Spencer co-founded the Systems Group in 1969 in the UK, rooting her work on the central principle of clarity. Spencer places stripes of different hue, tone and intensity next to one another, exploring the effect one colour has in its neighbours. Fall in love with her abstract tote bag. It's time to celebrate the female artists from the TATE collection!
Louise Bourgeois is easily recognised for her giant steel and bronze spider sculptures multiplying around the globe. As a young girl, Louise was dyeing cloth, weaving and
sewing in her parents’ tapestry studio in Paris. Bourgeois loved spiders. She described the spider as an artist, spinning thread and creating magnificent webs and her artwork has inspired the new tote bag and zip pockets collection. It could also mend things like the restoring of tapestries in her childhood. “The spiral is an attempt at controlling the chaos.”
