A hue where feminine and feminism collide.
Featuring artwork by Anastasia Klose, Tracey Lamb, Lola-Mae Pink, Maja Malou Lyse & Arvida Byström, Honey Long & Prue Stent, Jessie Adams and curated by Caroline Esbenshade.
Presented in the lead-up to International Women’s Day this exhibition explores the use of pink and other feminine motifs in creative practice by women. Once maligned for being girly and diminutive, pink is reclaimed and presented in hues ranging from hot pink to millennial with works exploring the social, biological and performative intersections of colour in practice.
Intended as a platform for dialogue, PINK explores where the combination of second wave feminism and neo-liberal feminism has brought womxn artists today. Covering a range of mediums and approaches the pieces in this show present a variety of creative practices and approaches to feminist narratives, each using pink as an element to strengthen their work, not minimise it.
Artist in Conversation with Prue Stent & Honey Long, Anastasia Klose and moderated by Dr Hannah McCann.
Available online to listen to from 5pm on Thursday 18 FEB 2021
Collaboration, performance, and femininity – Honey Long, Prue Stent and Anastasia Klose talk all things pink and feminism with Dr Hannah McCann in a dialogue that searches for an understanding between art practice, academic research and lived experience to find out – where is feminism now?
From 5pm on Thursday, February 18 2021 you can access an abridged recording of this panel discussion through the link here.
PINK Photo Booth
Book in for our fun, pink photo booth at West End Experience, 12 – 14 February!
Presented as part of PINK, local artist Ceardai Demelza has created an underwater world where Denise (they/them) a pygmy seahorse, male and pregnant, lives. Pygmy seahorses mimic the colour of the coral they live on; like all of us, Denise has adapted to fit into their environment. Explore Denise’s pink-hued coral home and have your photograph taken by our professional photographer.
The photo-booth is an opportunity to reflect on gender expression and stereotypes. Marvel in the magnificence of Denise – we invite you to dress up for this photographic moment (perhaps, a snorkel or goggles?). Everyone takes home a printed postcard image.
