We are delighted to announce that Rachel Maclean’s film Make Me Up will broadcast on BBC Four this Sunday 4 November 10pm, and available on demand thereafter. A shorter gallery edit of the film installed in Maclean’s major solo exhibition currently on show at Zabludowicz Collection in London. The film takes a darkly-satirical look at the contradictory pressures faced by women today and reflects on the multiple voices within contemporary feminism’s challenge to patriarchal abuses of power.

Make Me Up is a major film commission by Rachel Maclean, produced by Hopscotch Films with NVA for the BBC, Creative Scotland and 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation. Make Me Up is part of Represent, a series of works inspired by the Representation of the Peoples Act 1918.
