South London Women Artists are pleased to be showcasing 22 of their artists at Espacio Gallery. Situated in the heart of the East End, an area of London rich in the history of the rag trade, this is a perfect location for an exhibition which explores the connection between piecework and feminist art practises. Selected as Parliament Partners for 2013, Piecework will run alongside other SLWA projects created for Parliament Week, the theme of which this year is Women and Democracy.
Evidence of piecework fills our lives, from the clothes we wear, to the jobs we take, or the repetitive stuff of domestic life we have to do every day to keep the world going round. The work, in a variety of media – film, sculpture, drawing, painting, printmaking and textiles, is a personal response to that experience.
Details of Piecework, and other exhibitions by SLWA for Parliament Week can be found on the website.
