About the exhibition curators

The curators of the Printed in Time exhibition are all studying on the Curating & Art History course at the University of York. The exhibition is part of their second-year studies in which they have to curate an digital exhibition using the University of York’s art collection as the basis for their idea. The exhibition stemmed from a desire to display a selection of 18th century prints which the University of York recently acquired from Leighton House, specifically the prints after works by Angelica Kauffman and Maria Cosway. The theme then progressed to a focus on women artists, highlighting the importance of exposure for previously unshown works as well as challenging traditional images of women.
