The artworks on display have been selected from nearly 1,500 submissions from women across the world, including Tracey Emin. Curator Rosalind Parker (of the Meridian Institute for Culture and Dialogue & previously involved in 3FF’s Urban Dialogues exhibition) says, “This is a platform for female artists, both established and emerging, to engage in discussion of gender, faith and spirituality.”
Women from communities across London will find this an exciting event.
