GU Women is a new Birmingham-based female collective, comprised of writers, curators, artists and researchers, who all have a connection to Grand Union.

GU Women is a group that prioritises mentorship and support – an active network which combats the lack of women in the arts. Rather than fitting to a system failing women, they make and cultivate a grassroots system which champions women. GU Women is focussed on the idea of supportive exchange – they share knowledge, networks, resources and importantly, intend to increase the visibility of their practices with each other.

As part of Birmingham Open Studios, a selection of members have come together to show their work in an inaugural group show. GU Women at Modern Clay will include work from:

Amelia Beavis-Harrison
Nuala Clooney
Emily Hawes
Sophie Huckfield
Ris Shaw
Joanne Masding
Laura Onions
Suzi Osborn
Sarah Taylor Silverwood
Kaye Winwood
