During her Arts and Humanities Research Council [AHRC] research project Rebecca Fortnum interviewed an important and influential sample of British women artists practicing internationally today. Her interviews and reflections were published as ‘Contemporary British Women Artists: in their own words’, (I.B. Tauris 2006).
