What a brilliant evening the Radiant futures launch was! We had our artists, Clare West and Radhika Muthanna along with co-curator Melitta Nemeth join us for the launch. The aim with this residency was to create a testing ground for diverse practitioners and practices, embracing difference and avoiding homogenisation to explore new territories for future exchange and being with each other.
In different ways all three artists have explored these ideas by recognising the multiplicity of women as a power and embracing difference to connect, respond and celebrate each other, the wider community and environment. The artists have challenged ideas of beauty, value and care. They explored the wider effects of feminism as well as looking at the effects of societal structures on local and individual levels.
The exhibition is currently displayed at our Artcore gallery on Albert Street. Do come and have a look at the fantastic work produced!
The exhibition will be displayed until 9th September 2022.
Gallery Opening Times: Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 5pm.
