With an array of colour and texture, craft and textile, the organic and the human, Vogue's pick of female-led exhibitions is bound to take you on the perfect autumn outing across the leaf-covered streets of Britain.

Cathie Pilkington: Working from Home
Pilkington draws on themes from motherhood and grief in her chilling new installation at Pallant House Gallery. The show features a number of her own sculptures, from dismembered limbs to pregnant dolls, as well as a carefully selected variety of artists from the gallery's own collection.
Polly Apfelbaum showcases an 'immersive onslaught of colour' in her new installation at Ikon. References range from abstract expressionists to folk art to irrigation patterns of the Mid Western landscape. Nondiscriminatory, celebratory, and downright obsessive, Apfelbaum’s self-proclaimed “erupting rainbow volcano experience” is a retro pop hit, just in time for winter.
Waiting For The UFOs (a space set between a landscape and a bunch of flowers) by Polly Apfelbaum is at Ikon until 18th November 2018.
The National Museum in Cardiff is highlighting the role of women both in front and behind of the lens in a two-part exhibition. Showcasing an intimate insight in to the unseen works from pioneering photographers which focus on female representation.
