Gorrill has exhibited nationally and internationally, and had her feminist and gender work featured in many publications. She is also archived in the Womens Art Library at Goldsmiths, and had her work mentioned in the Open University's art history modules. Her major solo show Dei-cide was a showcase of four years of feminist research, and she is currently working towards further forthcoming solo shows. Last year, Gorrill was shortlisted for the Cartazini Award in Paris, and this year has been shortlisted for the fourth international Passion for Freedom award, taking place in November 2012 at Unit 24 Gallery adjacent to Tate Modern. Her planned/accomplished international residencies include Paris (2011), Isle of Skye (2012), the Czech Republic (2012), Paris (2013), Milan (2013), and New York (2014).
