Curator Hannah Thorne will lead an artist Q&A on the subject of Finding Solutions: Pragmatic Approaches to Art Making.


Each of the artists selected for Female Trouble has her own pragmatic approach to working with non traditional exhibition spaces. Responding to a space’s idiosyncrasies becomes in itself a step of the art-making process and the recreation of immersive and imagined landscape culminates in dramatic and theatrical installations. Each artist also incorporates the use of found, affordable or industrial materials to stage their interventions. Poor quality materials from pound shops and markets are employed, transforming materials that parade as glitz and glamour, questioning our presupposed value of an object. These materials represent a value system endemic and popular, affordable kitsch, a contemporary decadence, as well as an inequality in the consuming population.

FEMALE TROUBLE is funded by Arts Council England Grants for the Arts, with kind donations from AbsolutePrint, and the generous support of local businesses: Hanley Estate Agency, Map Gift Shop, Tesco, Crisis, as well as the Whittington Community Centre & St John the Evangelist Anglican Church.
