An exhibition in aid of International Women’s Day.
“A multimedia exhibition from Sweet ‘Art 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”. 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.
Guests attending the Y Not? private view evening can also enjoy welcome cocktails courtesy of Courvoisier along with the usual Sweet ‘Art freebies, surprises and their 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.”

Quiet Rebellions: Hidden Transcripts
March 29-April 19, 2015
“People can find themselves in situations where they are at the mercy of those in power. These situations have a public transcript or an accepted front to the situation that everyone has to be seen to agree with. Open criticism of the public transcript may put a person at risk of emotional, physical or economic retribution from those in power. In this exhibition I try to make public the transcripts that normally remain hidden.”
Private View Saturday 28 March 1pm – 4pm
