Sheroes, Lon-art’s third Social Exhibition, champions little-known women warriors, leading ladies and unsung stars. Women artists and allies have been invited to use their creative expression to give a voice to and turn our eyes towards silenced and overlookedheroines – sheroes – throughout herstory, and offer inspiring female role models for us all.
Through Sheroes, Lon-art aims to open a dialogue between art and the public, encouraging attendees to reflect upon the lack of female role models in society and make creative learning accessible for all.
Coinciding with International Women’s History Month, Sheroes will start with an exhibition hosted from 8 - 11 March 2018 at Ugly Duck, which will be followed by a number of activities to impact a wider community. These will include workshops for schools, 'Sheroes in the History of Art' tours at the National Gallery, a talk on ‘Sheroes of Literature’ at Housmans Books and a workshop for families at the art materials shop Great Art.
The exhibition will include over 20 artists, working across performance and visual arts in a range of media - among them Paola Paredes, Ishita Sing, Jemimah Patterson, Verónica Restrepo, Mona Chalabi, Carmen Alemán, Sabrina Fuller, Jaqueline Taylor or Lorenzo Beleaguer.
