An exhibition exploring women's resistance (closing soon)
Still I Rise is an exhibition of over 100 exhibits by over 40 artists examining the role that women have played in the history of resistance movements. It is presently on display at Nottingham Contemporary, but will be closing soon on 27 January 2019. If you're not able to get to the Nottingham location, the full exhibition will be moving to De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea from 9 Feb 2 Jun 2019.

The exhibition design was created by f-architecture collaborative (feminist architecture collaborative), which 'is a three-woman research enterprise aimed at disentangling the contemporary spatial politics of bodies, intimately and globally.'

The exhibition employs a range of diverse works by individual and group contributors working across the disciplines, including visual arts, construction, architecture, literature, and design. The exhibition was intended to coincide with the centenary of women's suffrage in the UK, and does feature key historical events, but it also displays works concerning recent resistance movements in a global context, such as the women's marches in the United States, protests against violence in Argentina, and the role of women in the Black Lives Matter movement. A full list of the exhibiting artists and collectives is available at Nottingham Contemporary.
