Cob is proud to present A Timeless Story, the debut UK solo exhibition for Spanish artist Chechu Álava.

For the last decade, Álava has produced an ongoing series of painting portraits that seek to unify and align the depictions of ancient and mythological female protagonists with that of modern and contemporary feminist icons, female intellectuals, writers and artists. A Timeless Story follows on from two presentations of the same painting series in the last two years – The Restless Muses at BravinLee programs in New York (2021), and Rebeldes, a museum solo exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum in Madrid (2020).
