UP Projects curated ann exhibition of new and established contemporary artists for Amnesty International as part of their Stop Violence Against Women Campaign.
The atmospheric interior of the Bargehouse, on London’s Southbank was the ideal environment to exhibit film, sculpture, photography, painting and interactive installations that confronted issues of gender based violence & discrimination through humour, eloquence, life-sized glove puppets and fake fur.
The exhibition featured works by Guerrila Girls, Tracey Emin, Jemima Burrill, Grayson Perry, Martha Rosler, Catherine Bertola, Shane Waltener, Grace Ndiritu, Jet, Anat Ben-David, Marica Farquhar, Elaine Tribley, Jeroo Roy, Sion Parkinson, Josefine Engstrom,Karin Hoffstedt & Cecilia Lindgren, The House of O'Dwyer, Michael Lisle-Taylor, Stella Vine, Marc Quinn, Illustrious Co, Vince Clarke & Martyn Ware and Alison Lapper.
During the exhibition we hosted a Lecture / Performance by Frida Kahlo of the Guerrilla Girls and performances by Marcia Farquhar in The Cabinet of Horribly Violent Glove Puppets.
