Born in South Africa in 1968, artist Lisa Brice spent extended periods of time living and working in Trinidad before settling in London. This month, Brice’s work – which includes large-scale paintings that address the longstanding art-historical tradition of the female nude – will go on show at Tate Britain for the first time. Her work depicts women, alone or in groups, chatting, getting dressed, undressing or escaping the heat of the sun for a beer or a cigarette. Brice captures women in moments of downtime, engaged in a private world, performing everyday rituals. ...
If your skin tone is closer to Zoë Kravitz, Solange or Jourdan Dunn, you have warm undertones. If you’re more akin to Chloë Sevigny, Kate Moss or Karlie Kloss, then you have cool-toned skin.

It's a momentous occasion, not least because 2018 marks a century since many British women over 30 won the right to vote, but also because the bronze figure, of leading suffragist Millicent Fawcett, is the first in the square to have been designed by a woman, the Turner Prize-winning conceptual artist Gillian Wearing OBE.
It’s early evening in Jamaica and I’m sitting cross legged in a room with 20 other women aged between 25 and 75. Everyone has a bottle of water; some have headphones, earplugs or a pillow. We’re sitting under a structure painted in tropical greens, pinks and purples, and outside it’s pouring warm, torrential Caribbean rain. I watch droplets run down palm leaves and drip onto the concrete floor while a heavily pregnant woman in a long dress chats with everyone, asking them how they’re feeling and what their previous experience is with the practice we’re about to start. ...
“Do you enjoy watching people tear themselves apart?” an uncomprehending civilian asks one of the many divorce lawyers during the opening episode of The Split.
