‘FEMINIST UTOPIA’, 09 SEP – 09 OCT 2020
A GROUP EXHIBITION CURATED BY ANELISA MANGCU

Participating Artists: Kimathi Mafafo, Akudzwe Elsie Chiwa, Haneem Christian, Anico Mostert, Emma Blencowe, Yonela Makoba and Gemma Shepherd

Feminist critics often reflect a rigid and monolithic patriarchal perspective which frequently depicts feminism as a movement that stems from a group of ‘angry women’ and ‘ungrateful women’. This reflects the patriarchal resistance of gender equity within a social, political and economic structure. The persistent othering and policing of femme bodies, reinforces patriarchal privileges which oppose engaging feminist and womanist discourses. This exhibition highlights why feminism and womanism is pertinent in the contemporary.

Feminist utopia challenges social indoctrinations, by confronting theoretical assumptions of the femme and gender non-conforming bodies role, the social contract and the undeniable narrative of a nuclear family romance assigned at birth. With this exhibition, the artists mediate on the rigid social structures and speculate on a shared future from a more nuanced perspective.
