The South London Gallery and Calvert 22 present Unknown Heroine, the first exhibition in the UK of Croatian artist Sanja Iveković (b. 1949, Zagreb). This timely retrospective, curated by Lina Džuverović and spanning both venues, introduces Iveković’s pioneering work in collage, film, performance and installation. Tackling issues of female identity, consumerism and historical amnesia, the exhibition features work made across four decades against a background of political unrest.
