In this second instalment of three, 'Life on Venus II: The Human' is an online exhibition and auction of over 150 A5 sized works in all medium by female-identifying and non-binary artists.

About

Nobody thought that life could exist on Venus. Nobody thought to look for it. Yet earlier this year, Phosphene, a gas which signals the existence of life, was discovered on the planet Venus, by Astrophysicist Clara Sousa-Silva. 

A recent survey suggests that it’ll take 130 years to close the gender gap in the field of astrophysics. The same gap exists in the cultural sector, with men under the age of 35 twice as likely as women to hold senior job roles. 

But this isn’t an exhibition about what has been achieved in spite of adversity, instead it is a celebration of what has always existed and rarely shown or celebrated. 

For ‘Life On Venus’, we invited female-identifying and non-binary artists to send us a home-made post-cards responding to the idea of ‘Life on Venus I: The Landscape', 'Life on Venus II: The Human' and 'Life on Venus III: The Organic.'

All work is up for auction online at The Auction Collective's website: A new and affordable way to buy art | The Auction Collective until the 28th of January at 7pm.
