About

STOPJECTIFY is #STOPJECTIFY invites the audience to reconsider the status quo we reside within, and question how we can break the age-old cycles that perpetuate objectification as a ‘normal' fixture of everyday life.
Opening with a private view coinciding with International World Women’s day 2016, the exhibition runs from the 7th to the 12th of March at Gallery Different, 14 Percy Street, Central London, W1T 1DR.
Gender equality has come a long way, but there is still a long road ahead. Objectification affects people of all gender, race and sexual orientation. It causes great harm to people's mental health and self esteem, yet it seems an almost insurmountable task to shift people away from outmoded thought and behaviour patterns.
A textile artist predominantly exploring subjects of gender imbalance and feminism within her practice, de Wahls has curated a show that places her own art alongside works by an international cast of up-and-coming and established artists, including, Anne Bengard (Germany), Diane Goldie (UK), Ellen Schinderman (USA) and many more.
Exhibiting work from a wide variety of artistic practices, from visual arts, performance art to spoken word, de Wahls has created an exhibition that will inspire change and greater social consciousness, encouraging the viewer to self-reflect and identify the subtleties by which we all victimise and are victimised by objectification.
