A Fans of Feminism
Pop up Art Show
Marsh Ruby, 30 Lower

21 March – 23 May
A year ago, a group of students at the Cass School of Art
realised that, although a lot of them were making work in response to women
artists of the past, many of their tutors were nevertheless still educating
from a male historical art canon. The student society made a request for change
in the references and reading lists, and the feedback and action was positive.
This encouraged them to lay more ambitious plans, such as organising talks and
crits with a feminist gaze. Out of this was then born an exhibition, Fans of
Feminism, which was so well received, that the group has kept on going,
attracting involvement both from tutors and artists external to the university.
This spring sees their second exhibition, a pop up show at a café-restaurant in
Waterloo, organised and curated by Caroline Halliday, Seana Wilson, Carla Cruz
and Thessa Van Der Kuyp, and bringing together works by a range of female
artists, all to some degree or other celebrating womanhood.
