Art Exhibitions

The Female Line

29 August 2019

The Female Line calls on the artist to critically consider the inherited roles that exist within their matrilineal ancestry. In addressing and focussing closely on aspects of a culture driven by female agents (mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts) – this exhibition asks the artist to engage with their personal matrilineal ancestry as they have experienced it. The Female Line aims to reflect on histories of violence and histories of love, loss and nostalgia; the current effects that the matrilineal society has claimed over space and politics as well as their own sentiments, celebrations, fears, questions and pleasures experienced both personally and as part of a collective memory.
 
The Female Line includes work by emerging artists from various geographical backgrounds.
