Gemma Shepherd: Untitled I

banner-970x90f

“Feminist Utopia” is a group exhibition curated by Anelisa Mangcu running until 9 October at Ebony/Curated.

Feminist critics often reflect a rigid and monolithic patriarchal perspective which frequently depicts feminism as a movement that stems from a group of ‘angry women’ and ‘ungrateful women’.

YONELA MAKOBA: A Fragile Thing

This reflects the patriarchal resistance of gender equity within a social, political and economic structure.

Haneem Christian: THE MEMORIAL BALL – MATTE LE CAP.

The persistent othering and policing of femme bodies, reinforces patriarchal privileges which oppose engaging feminist and womanist discourses.

Anico Mostert: Kook en Geniet.

This exhibition highlights why feminism and womanism is pertinent in the contemporary.

EMMA BLENCOWE: Descend.

Feminist utopia challenges social indoctrinations, by confronting theoretical assumptions of the femme and gender non-conforming bodies role, the social contract and the undeniable narrative of a nuclear family romance assigned at birth.

With this exhibition, the artists mediate on the rigid social structures and speculate on a shared future from a more nuanced perspective.

AKUDZWE ELSIE CHIWA: Healing.

Participating Artists: Kimathi Mafafo, Akudzwe Elsie Chiwa, Haneem Christian, Anico Mostert, Emma Blencowe, Yonela Makoba and Gemma Shepherd.
