NASTY WOMEN is a collective, all-female, non-binary and woman-identified artist exhibition, curated by women, in an aim to explore and re-appropriate what it is to be a woman now, and moving into the future.
We seek to expose the challenges and threats we face in the public sphere, and utilize this platform as a call for solidarity to react to the absurdities of past & present stereotypes. The portrait of a woman is often depicted by men and perpetuated through media and individual conversation. The Nasty Women exhibition seeks to question the evolution of what it means to be a woman, an artist, a female artist and the role we play in forwarding our tangible and intangible realities.
This exhibition was born out of the desire to open & continue a dialogue, and pay tribute to the power of the creative female.
