Following the upsurge of Gender Based Violence against children, cis, non-binary and trans women, Art@Africa presents a womxn focused exhibition that highlights the modern day womxn, as well as their contributions to society.

Whilst being feminine has always been perceived as weak and thus resulted to womxn being placed in stereotypical boxes, this exhibition aims to challenge the status quo, fight the violence that is being is
being inflicted on cis, non-binary and trans women, whilst making a point that all womxn, do indeed matter.

We want to help create a space and platform that will give birth to a different narrative which will help society move forward.

The show, which will take place at the gallery as well online in August will feature 10 – 25 artworks per gallery from different artists selected by two womxn curators. We believe that artists are the agents of change, and through this exhibition we hope to present work that will affect and truly reflect the power of womxn.
