A Room of One's Own is an exhibition about the work and ideas of female artists spanning several generations, with most works taken from the Bonnefanten’s own collection. This exhibition also features guest artists Carol Rhodes, Lydia Schouten and Marijke Stultiens.

Female artists

In the exhibition A Room of One's Own several rooms are dedicated to the work and ideas of female artists in our collection who made their name in a world where male artists were the norm. Next to works from our own collection, A Room of One's Own also features guest exhibitions from Carol Rhodes (1959-2018), Lydia Schouten (1948) en Marijke Stultiens (1927).

Lydia Schouten

As a pioneer in the fields of performance, video and installation art, and as a feminist figurehead, Schouten has a long trackrecord in the international art world. Spanning 45 years, her oeuvre addresses important themes like mass media, identity, loneliness, violence and abuse.

Carol Rhodes*

Carol Rhodes (1959, Edinburgh– 2018 Glasgow) artistic career spanned over 35 years. In A Room of One's Own both her drawings and paintings are on view. This posthumous retrospective is her first solo museum presentation on the European mainland. Rhodes painted many landscapes from an aerial view, reflecting a rapdidly changing world.

Marijke Stultiens

Marijke Stultiens (1927, Breda) artistic career spans over 70 years. The exhibition A Room of One’s Own shows recent works made by the artist starting in 1980. Stultiens career began in a time period where women were expected to sacrifice their career and ambitions for their partner and children. This was not an option for her: 'You'll never bridge a gap in your career.'
