Sheroes – Revoluciones
22nd November 2019 - 24th November 2019£5.98 – £14.6
In recent years, a wave of revolutionary feminist campaigns, protests and strikes have hit Latin America, Spain and other parts of the world.
With an estimated 35% of women worldwide experiencing physical or sexual violence at some point in their lives*, a global movement with Latin roots is rising up, confronting the facts and demanding a better future.
Sheroes-Revoluciones is an exhibition merging art, activism and social justice. It will amplify the message and make inspiring and important voices heard on the UK stage – where 190 women were killed by their partners in 2018**.
Join us, and join these women artists, survivors and change-makers.
Together we can stand up to violence against women!
The full programme will be released in October and it will include the opening party, spoken word performances and workshops.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22ND – Opening Party
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd – Sheroes Late with spoken word performances and music
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24th – Workshops for the general public.
You can learn more about Sheroes here.
Sheroes is an on-going collaborative project bringing together UK and international artists, feminist organisations, charities and the general public, including families. Through Sheroes, Lon-art aims to open a dialogue between art and the public, encouraging attendees to reflect upon the lack of female role models in society and make creative learning accessible for all.
Sheroes – Revoluciones is being organised in partnership with Ugly Duckand GreatArt.
EXCLUSIVE SUMMER OFFER
What does it mean to be a ‘shero’? Are the characteristics of female ‘sheroism’ necessarily the same as those of the archetypal hero? Are we able to break away from such imposed categories?
This summer, we are releasing 40 Tickets that include a ticket for our Sheroes in the History of Art tour at the National Gallery! (worth £15).
An interactive tour at the National Gallery, during which we will examine and deconstruct the virtues of heroism, from strength and sacrifice to leadership and ingenuity, looking at how these qualities are reflected in the history of art, particularly when it comes to women.
Date 1 – 7th of December 2019
Date 2 – 11th of January 2020
NOTE ON CONCESSIONS: WE WANT EVERYONE TO JOIN US, SO IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD THE TICKET, PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL TO INFO@LON-ART.ORG.
