Monday 13 November 5-7 at Grand Parade Building (City Campus), University of Brighton.
This exhibition includes a collection of responses to stories of gender-based violence in the UK and Mexico during and after the Covid 19 pandemic. It is a rich and diverse set of artworks in the form of sculpture, textiles, fine art painting, performance poetry, creative writing, illustration, comic stories and film.
The exhibition follows on from an AHRC funded project led by Professor Lesley Murray The Immobilities of gender-based violence in the Covid 19 pandemic, which considered the range of connected spaces in which GBV takes place. The project team – based in Brighton and Mexico – found that sensory storying is a transformative way of telling GBV and of connecting conversations across national borders.
Alongside the exhibition, throughout the week, will be a series of open roundtable events that will include the artists taking part in the exhibition and anyone interested in having a conversation about gender-based violence. Anyone can join these discussions – see details here.
