Rogue Women, Rogue Studios, Manchester November - December 2019
I was really delighted to be invited to be a guest artist in this exhibition in Manchester by Jen Orpin and Margaret Cahill, guest curated by Ann Bukantas
16 November – 1 December 2019 Private View: Friday 15 November 6 – 9pm
Rogue: Behaving in ways that are not expected or not normal.
Subversive: seeking or intended to subvert an established system or institution.
Solidarity: unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest; mutual support within a group.
Why are so many female artists airbrushed from history?
Why is there gender inequality in the art world?
What does it mean to be a woman in Art?
Throughout art history women have been largely invisible, ignored and excluded from the dialogue.
We have decided to respond to the discourse around the gender imbalance in the arts by having an all female artists exhibition entitled ‘ROGUE WOMEN’
This brings together and celebrates the work of 40 women artists from Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and London and includes young emerging artists alongside established international artists working in varied disciplines.
The aim is to put women in the spotlight and show solidarity with women artists everywhere.
Our guest curator is Ann Bukantas, Curator and Head of Fine Art at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
