Sisterhood is Powerful: Posters from GWL

11th May, 2017 - 22nd July, 2017

‘Women Hold Up More Than Half the Sky’ by See Red Women’s Workshop Photo Credit: GWL

Posters are powerful. In the second of three exhibitions celebrating our 25th anniversary year, we spotlight graphic gems from the huge poster collection at GWL. The exhibition includes some of the cut and paste works created to spread the word about GWL in its infancy, posters raising awareness of women’s issues at home and internationally, works that promote women in the arts, and campaigning flyers for social and political change. All demonstrate how the poster format has and continues to be important to women, women’s groups and GWL.

Sisterhood is Powerful, Thursday 11th May to Saturday 22nd July, visit during GWL opening hours

This exhibition has been curated and designed by our first Designer in Residence, Kirsty McBride. All are welcome to join us for a preview of this exhibition on Thursday 11th May, 6pm to 7.30pm. Find out more here.
