HRH Princess Margaret - 20 Years 20 Artworks

HRH Princess Margaret – 20 Years 20 Artworks is an exhibition that brings together the creative energies of 22 artists from the UK and abroad, reinterpreting Ken Griffiths’ famous photograph of Princess Margaret through their own eyes.
The photograph, depicting Princess Margaret with an air of mischievousness as she holds an embroidered pillow that reads It’s not easy being a Princess, was taken in 1985. It remained unpublished until the Princess’ death, on the 9th of February 2002, when it appeared on The Sunday Telegraph’s front cover. A reproduction of the iconic pillow was also included in 2020 in the Netflix drama ‘The Crown’, as a memento of her struggle and once again capturing the viewers’ imagination with its quirky message and self-effacing irony.
Through twenty artworks spanning a wide range of media - from sculpture and embroidery to oil paintings and neon - HRH Princess Margaret – 20 Years 20 Artworks marks 20 years since the Princess’ passing. The 20 artistic reinterpretations end up transcending the subject portrayed in Ken’s original photograph, as well as Ken himself and the context, speaking to all people of the difficulty of the roles assigned to us. Margaret becomes a vessel to convey powerful and relatable messages of freedom, wanting, loving, and of longing.
The exhibition also includes an important selection of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), unique digital representations of works of art. Some of the artworks included in the exhibition exist only digitally, while others have also been displayed in their physical form.
At its core, the exhibition was conceived as an invitation for artists to explore their vision of womanhood, exposure and power, and for visitors to be challenged by them in new and unpredictable ways - as art always does.
