A UNIQUE EVENT IN HUMAN HISTORY
PV SATURDAY 17 June, 6pm
Part of ROOM 6.2
Exhibiting Artists: Sophie Brook | Nyousha Movagharzadeh | Harrie Pilkington | Harriette Meynell | Rosie Back | Becky Hancock | Jodie Maidment | Daisy Morey| Lily Hudson
"A Unique Event In Human History" explores womanhood as a displacer, creating dialogues wherein femininity becomes a point of tension in an artists life. The work heavily focuses on the stories of individuals; narratives more commonly seen in the Feminist Western canon curated along side experiences of femininity under-represented in the Art World.
The artists in the exhibition articulate a series of unique experiences of femininity. Some discuss an inability to be female artists in their country of birth; either through censorship or initial displacement from their country at a young age. Artists also explore the difficulties and liberations in both accepting and rejecting femininity, as well as considering a more family orientated discussion of the feminine. The exhibition aims to champion some of the voices undervalued in the Art World, bringing forward opinions that are surprising to some yet obvious to others.

ROOM 6.2, April-September
hARTslane is excited to launch its second ROOM 6.0. Our mission for ROOM 6.2 is to offer a platform for the voice and vision of individual female artists. We want to provide opportunities to artists who raise awareness of the role of women in the visual arts and promote public involvement and support. Responding to the Guerrilla Girls' display at the Tate Modern, exposing sexual and racial discrimination in the art world, we question the tradition of awarding power to masculinity to the exclusion of others. The title of our programme mirrors Maya Angelou’s poem “Phenomenal Woman” and is an invitation to celebrate and nurture femininity.
