Time/dates: Opening night – International Women’s Day, Tuesday, March 8 · 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Exhibition runs 9th March to 22nd March 2011, 1000 - 1700
This March, to celebrate Women's History Month, Green Lens Studios in collaboration with project curators Jonida Gashi and Roger Orwell, are staging an exhibition by a group of international female artists based in London.
In this exhibition the transnational and multi-ethnic nature of women's history will be explored through differing media. Each artist will engage with a particular aspect of this history through the media of: painting, sculpture, exterior architecture, sound, moving image, writing and mark-making. In some ways these are hidden histories in that messages of female identity are opened up and exposed from within.
The participating artists are: Mina Salimi (Iran)
