Private View: Thursday 2 April 6-9pm An exhibition in aid of International Women's Day.
Join Sweet ‘Art in March for their next hotly anticipated show Y Not?, a multimedia exhibition in aid of International Women’s Day. Y Not? will explore the theme of femininity, feminine identity and women’s day with a focus on the female form, gender identity, feminist issues, social and political issues and constructs and personal accounts and perspectives. Works will celebrate, critique, challenge, ridicule and reflect notions of femininity in our society and internationally, created by artists identifying as any gender.
Sweet'Art is a non-profit arts organisation based in London, dedicated to the promotion of upcoming and established artists through exciting pop up art events with a difference. Their launch event in 2012 was a celebration of women’s day and they are now going back to their roots in hosting Y Not?
This time Sweet ‘Art will be partnering with two amazing creative organisations: Lensationan and The LMP Gallery.
Lensational, who empower women emotionally and economically through providing photography training and equipment, will be curating an area of the exhibition, showcasing the stunning photography resulting from the workshops they have facilitated with women in developing countries.
The LMP Gallery is an energetic and creative hub in Austin, Texas. This amazing organisation are also hosting an International Women’s Day show in parallel to Sweet ‘Arts London based exhibition and the two spaces will be exchanging 5 artworks to exhibit during the show run, in a display of international solidarity and connectedness! An archive of this cultural exchange will also be exhibited at each show.
In addition to the thought provoking, well executed artworks guests attending the Y Not? private view evening can also enjoy welcome cocktails courtesy of Courvoisier along with the usual Sweet ‘Art freebies and surprises. Keep your eye out for those now infamous vagina cupcakes!
Y Not? will run in support of the Art’s Therapy project at Solace, a charity that supports those who are survivors of domestic violence.
