The Future is FemaleGROUP SHOW 30 Jan - 5 Mar 2020The commonalities inculcated within each of these egalitarian pieces are themes of integrity, environmental conservation and cultural conservation all captured in an explosive narrative. In the great words of Donna Karan “I believe in the power of women. As nurturers, we have the ability to care and share and make the world a better place”
The nurturing manner in which artists like Ghizlane Sahli present the collateral beauty of recycling and re-use as a means to achieving such resplendent, ethereal, biomorphic organ-like shapes. This further consolidates the validity in the need for women to be involved in conversations that find themselves within the slipstream of international commentary which for long has remained predominantly patriarchal. It is our hope that this group show will capture the importance of women in places of power as integral and not subject to tokenism. The future is indeed female!
