Still I Rise is a timely exhibition exploring the history of resistance and alternative forms of living from the perspective of gender. This major group exhibition looks at the many forms resistance can take: from intimate acts to large-scale uprisings, from the late 19th century to the present and beyond.
Still I Rise presents the way in which resistance has been approached by visual artists, writers, architects, designers, activists, working as individuals or in groups. It takes place within a global context, referring to recent women-led uprisings and demonstrations, as well as historic moments including the Civil Rights Movement, independence movements against colonial rule in Africa, the Women’s Liberation Movement, the AIDS crisis and the Stonewall Rebellion.
At the core of Still I Rise is the idea of collaboration, community building and egalitarianism.
The Master, Anne Thorne, has some of her work as part of the Matrix Feminist Design Co-operative on show, plus the Head of Exhibitions at the De La Warr, Rosie Cooper (also Prue and Nicholas Coopers daughter), will be giving us a guided tour of the exhibition. We have organised for lunch afterwards in the Cafe.
