Gillian Wearing: Courage Calls to Courage Everywhere – The Making of the Millicent Fawcett Statue for Parliament Square
Firstsite is delighted to present an exhibition documenting the creation of Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing’s statue of Suffragist leader Millicent Fawcett, situated in Parliament Square, London. It will also feature a number of works drawn from Wearing’s celebrated photographic series, Signs that Say What You Want Them To Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You To Say.

The title, Courage Calls to Courage Everywhere, comes from Fawcett’s response to the death of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, knocked down by the King’s horse at the Epsom Derby in 1913. It is comprised of the original small-scale maquette of the statue, Wearing’s notes, designs and development research that chart its making, as well as 3D prints from the mould-making process – never shown in public before. The exhibition also includes materials and documents from Fawcett’s life and further explores the lives of other members of the suffrage movement.
