Exhibition: Mal(e)Feasance

7 March 2020 | 11am – 6pm

8 March 2020 | 11am – 4pm

Ugly Duck, 49 Tanner Street, London, SE1 3PL

A weekend event exhibiting the work of artists who are overlooked and disadvantaged on the basis of gender. In a system of demarcation that favors individuals over others disguised as a meritocracy, there is still a desperate need for the creation of platforms that attempt to right this disparity. Manifesting the reparative qualities of work through repetition, invocation and making is a means of empowerment in the face of judgment. 

Looking at language associated with the alienation of female identifying and gender non-binary individuals, specifically as makers, the work becomes a tool of unification through the creation of an autonomous platform. Showcasing artist from the Royal College of Art pursuing contemporary art practices, through moving image, digital, sculpture, performance and installation the final exhibition will attempt to create an incantation to galvanise and mobilise both artists and viewers. 

A number of the artists work with installation and performance, occupying space and embodying the need for visibility and inclusivity. Performances will take place from 6.30 - 8.30 Friday 6th March.
