Her Perspective

 

An exhibition of works by women is bound to be a lot of things, we are naturally, so much more than a gendered prescription. And that’s really the point. In this show you’ll find a multitude of perspectives and approaches. There are abstract paintings and others rooted in realism; minimal works alongside others dense with symbolism. It’s no secret that works by women are under-represented in museums around the world, but we can start to turn the tide by supporting female artists in our community and celebrating their incredible skill, ingenuity and vision.

About Screen Time

With the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we’ve moved the annual Artist Project show to a nine-week series of online exhibitions, running April 1 - June 2, 2021. Every Thursday at noon, a new themed exhibition launches featuring seven artists with a daily artist feature on our social media channels. From painting and drawing, to sculpture, prints and photography, the shows will support an incredible breadth of work, all available for sale directly from the artists.  During this time when we’re spending so much time at home, consider supporting an independent artist and treating yourself to a fresh perspective with an original work of art.

Raised in South Africa during apartheid, Aadila Munshi creates from a deep sense of repressed voice. Her work is known for its distressed surfaces, juxtaposing gritty textures with soft, elegant marks and calligraphic forms. Through this contrast, Munshi presents her perception of the push and pull between struggle, hope and the ability to rise above.
