With Helen Chadwick’s death in 1996 at the age of forty-two, the art world lost yet another major young female artist. For Chadwick, pleasure, visual and otherwise, had parity with politics, and she is remembered as much for her vibrant, sassy feminism as her roving experimentation across sculpture, installation, and photography. This seventy-work retrospective places the artist’s last pieces alongside reprises of two major London solo shows, in 1986 and 1994, to trace her journey from an allegorical, decorative postmodernism to exuberantly scatalogical yet sensual sculpture.
