Stand Up! Exhibition celebrating International Women's Day at Artcore






Artcore Gallery
10th-20th March
Opening night Friday 9th March 2018, 6-8pm

At Artcore Gallery, artists are invited to explore what is the role of female artists as citizens and what is their impact in our current society.

The current economic and financial crisis is important in constructing gender citizenship. In neo-liberal times active citizens are conceptualized as independent, rational, and able individuals. This project will seek to challenge the neo-liberal myth of citizenship, and working alongside artists, to re-imagine citizenship, identity and women’s labour with a view to informing new visions for the future.

The show aims to exhibit the impact art has on gender equality while showcasing how far women have come in the art world, and how it has been life-saving and changing.
