Nasty Women: Architecture is Anise Gallery’s response to the global Nasty Women art and activism movement. Co-curated by Aesthetica art prize winner and V&A digital resident Rachel Ara and art writer Issey Scott, this all-female exhibition will help to raise vital funds for Rape Crisis South London.
How women interact with the different spaces around us and the means by which they are constructed will be integral to the curation of the exhibition. We have invited Amelia Hunter (New Design Britain Architecture Winner 2015 & RIBAJ Eye Line drawing award winner 2014) to bring these ideas together in an all encompassing structure that will form the centrepiece of the exhibition.
At the far end of the gallery a ‘domestic’ setting will feature Augmented Reality wallpaper by New York-based digital artist Carla Gannis, sculptural works by Hannah Honeywill, feminist embroidery by Sophie Neville and other works from notable female artists such as Rachel Ara and Frances Richardson. An open call out for submissions is also under-way.
A special screening of ‘Zaha: An Architectural Legacy’ by Laura Mark and Jim Stephenson will headline the events programme. The film will also be available to watch for the duration of the exhibition. We are delighted that so many incredible women have given their time and work to this exhibition, with the ultimate aim to raise awareness and much needed funds.
