In celebration of International Women’s Day on 8 March 2018, 40 boundary breaking feminist artists will exhibit in Empowerment, a show co-curated by Creative Debuts and Nasty Women Exhibition in New York in collaboration with Nasty Women movements in London, North East England, Amsterdam, and Lisbon.
The exhibition Empowerment coincides with International Women’s Day and will take place in Shoreditch, London. “Empowerment is calling for greater diversity in the arts and accelerating gender equality” says Calum Hall, Co-Founder of Creative Debuts.
Artists from as far and wide as the United States, Nigeria, India, Iran, Germany, the Netherlands, Greece, Sweden, and the UK will be exhibiting at Empowerment. Works include photography, collage, digital art, fine art, sculpture, craft, and ceramics. Part of the money raised from the exhibition will be donated to End Violence Against Women Coalition to protect women’s rights worldwide.
“A lot of work still needs to be done to make the art world more inclusive” says Calum. “Empowerment is just the start! We will build on this work later in the year with The Anti Art Fair to continue challenging perceptions, create debate, and offer a platform to those on the margins of the art sector.”
Ahead of the opening, we spoke to Calum. Read the interview HERE.
