Weemin’s Wark

26th January - 26th March

The Weemin's Wark exhibition aims to increase the visibility of women’s contribution to contemporary island culture by providing a safe space in which to examine notions of labour and positivity for women and allies who challenge structures of social and institutional inequality.

Three books standing on a shelf with a plant. The books are New Daughters of Africa, edited by Margaret Busby, which has a black cover with a photo of a black woman looking directly at the reader, her hands clasped behind her head; Where the Wild Ladies Are, by Matsuda Aoko, a yellow cover with a dark abstract shape in the top half, and an illustration of the knees of two women in skirts sitting beside each other; Queenie, by Candace Carty-Williams, a deep pink cover with the head of a black woman in profile, her face not visible, and long braids pulled up into a bun.
