The Awesome womxn exhibition 2019

“We should all be feminists, that ‘single stories’ curtail and inform our thinking, especially about Africa,” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (2014) explains in her book.  Adichie urges us to ‘unlearn’ the lessons of our youth and instead foster new narratives where we may all strive to be as we are.
 
Awesome Womxn is a group exhibition curated by Dr Adéle Adendorff and hosted by the Association of Arts Pretoria in celebration of Women’s Month 2019.
 
The exhibition aims to make visible alternative, poly-vocal and multiple stories around the intersectional category, Womxn.  Artworks from thirty artists working with various materials and subjects offer a platform where we may expand our imaginations beyond the normative categories of gender and race to project new possibilities for ourselves and others.
