Still I Rise
Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance
Sum raised: 3,000 GBP
Young Collectors Collective (YCC) in partnership with Camel Assembly, an international community of creatives who gather to make change, supported 'Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance' at Nottingham Contemporary and De La Warr Pavilion, UK.
Funds raised by YCC and Camel Assembly will go towards the inclusion of works and archival material by artists from and related to South and East Asia.
Still I Rise is a timely exhibition exploring the role that women have played in the history of resistance movements and alternative forms of living. Coinciding with the centenary of women’s suffrage in the UK, this major group exhibition looks at resistance across the world from a multiplicity of viewpoints, from the domestic sphere to large-scale uprisings and spanning the late 19th century to the present. Developed as a collaboration between two institutions, Still I Rise unfolds in two ‘Acts’, responding to the local specificities of each place.
With over 100 exhibits by some 50 practitioners, Still I Rise presents the way in which resistance has been approached by visual artists, writers, architects, designers, activists, working as individuals or in groups. It takes place within a global context, referring to recent women-led uprisings and demonstrations.
