A Day Without A Woman

A Day Without A Woman

On International Women's Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity. 

The Women's March supports the feminists of color and grassroots groups organizing the International Women’s Strike on International Women's Day, March 8th, 2017. In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women's March, together we will mark the day by recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.  

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways: 

  1. Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor

  2. Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).

  3. Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

In light of our country’s political swing toward white supremacy and hate, artists need the emotional, financial, physical, and spiritual support to keep sustain their work.

Each week, You are invited to show up, listen, and share: support, resources, community-building and -connecting, information, and methods to enter every movement. You will receive a free, written guide with tips for making art during fascism (formerly during capitalism.)

Past personalities include artist and musician Yoko Ono, actress Nichelle Nichols, Andy Warhol superstar Candy Darling, musician Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and artists Leonor Fini and Yayoi Kusama. The results are remarkably revealing. Each issue includes a brief biography and a button affixed to the cover. DIY publishing and contemporary feminist art at its finest.

The YELL ROOM & Hushed Hysteria

THE YELL ROOM & HUSHED HYSTERIA – comprised of an interactive installation and a series of resulting digital prints – will initiate community dialogue about mental health, hysteria and normalcy, that snags us in an emotional loop of etymology. American society assures us we have freedom of speech, yet at the same time is so quick to hand out negative judgments, for outwardly expressing strong (and loud) opinions and feelings. What happens when you raise your voice? When you yell? When you just have to scream? What happens in the privacy of your own home? When family members are present? When friends are present? And if you don’t have a home, what happens in the exposure of public space? When strangers’ eyes and brains are evaluating you? When they are assigning words to you? Guess it depends on who you are. What you are. As Zora Neale Hurston, the American author and anthropologist, once said, “if you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.”

Reclaim The Feminine

Reclaim The Feminine

coGalleries is pleased to announce ‘Reclaim the Feminine’ our first solo-exhibition dedicated to Berlin-based artist Annique Delphine curated by Emma McKee. The exhibition will open on February 9, 2017 in the presence of the artist, and run until February 28, 2017.

‘Reclaim the Feminine’ will feature photographs from her series ‘Objectify Me’ and a mixed media installation piece articulated around the deconstruction of social norms regarding desire and objectification. We will also be showing her most recent film "Objectify Me". Through various mediums of expression, Delphine explores how material properties of images and objects *reclaim the feminine* through their arrangement.

In this exhibition, Delphine presents artworks containing breasts made of various materials and taking many forms: rubber breasts dripping in ice cream, arranged in bags, or cages. Large Breasts replacing the artist’s head in self-portraits - inspired from a world where femininity always finds a way into our reality. The photographs are a combination of beauty and disgust, a coercive portrayal of objectification itself.

BLOOM

  • 133 Copeland Road London, England, SE15 3SN United Kingdom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

❀ It is with great pleasure we bring back and invite you to the screening and art exhibition of BLOOM.

❀ Bloom is a new coming of age short film written and directed by Jesse Gassongo-Alexander. The film is centered around four teenage girls- Sabrina, Rianne, Tracey and Ruby. We enter the world of these girls at a point in their lives when they are just beginning to grapple with the greater issues of adulthood. Their world is a mélange of school subjects, dance routines,music and the looming issue of sex. In this film we get to see how they manage themselves internally and together as friends. As their summer comes to an end we realize that the sun may also be setting on a part of their youth that they will never be able to get back.

❀ Part of the BLOOM project includes collaborating with female visual artists from around the world. The artists have come from an array of different places to mention a few; England, France, Bulgaria, Holland, USA, Thailand, Israel, South Africa, Australia & New Zealand. These artists are sent out the script of the film and are asked to make brand new pieces in response to the film. These pieces are shared online, but also at our event.

❀Bloom was shared with audiences at an event for friends, family and a select few of the London underground creative scene back in September at Copeland Gallery. The event was a great success with over 200 people walking through the door. In November, the event was brought over to Copenhagen, Denmark by Danish Platform, Girls Are Awesome as part of a pop up event associated with the Copenhagen Pix Film Festival. 

❀ We are extremely happy to bring BLOOM back to London and are estatic to be able to host the the event at Copeland Gallery, Peckham, South East London again. As we do at all of our events, we are transforming the space. Using the 4400sq venue and creating an immersive experience for you all, with another BRAND NEW curation. Once again using plants, lighting designs and art to take you into the world of BLOOM.

Curated by Jessica Wang, Natsaha Hastings, Victoria Valcheva & Jesse Gassongo-Alexander.
