Sheroes in Quarantine is Lon-art’s first online exhibition dedicated to highlighting women’s issues and roles during the Covid-19 social crisis.
There is no time like the present and at Lon-art, we feel that now is the moment to re-think how our current societies are structured and reinvent the way we co-exist with one another. Creativity, activism and community foster these possibilities and invite the re-imagining of a society that works for all – a prospect in reach.
We believe that now is the time to re-think our current societies and reinvent the way we live and interact with each other. We need creative minds, activists and community to facilitate the imagining of a more sustainable society, where nature, women and marginalised groups are not only considered in policy, but part of decision-making.
Sheroes in Quarantine showcases 14 women artists and their respective 14 herstories; 14 reflections for the 14 days that represent a marker to save lives, our healthcare, and the future of our societies as we know.These herstories uncover the impact that lockdown and isolation are having on artists’ creativity and practice; the risks that the quarantine is posing to women; the consequences of capitalism in women’s everyday lives, now brought to the fore, and the gendered lense around mental ill-health. This project is a homage to these diaries of personal narratives the 14 exhibited artists have been so brave to share.
Sheroes in Quarantine is part of Lon-art’s flagship project Sheroes, a collaborative initiative that brings together UK and international artists, feminist organisations, charities and the general public.
Reflecting upon the comparative lack of female role models in society, Sheroes is a platform for the public and artists to share hidden herstories through visual art, workshops and talks.
Sheroes in Quarantine is Lon-art’s fourth Sheroes exhibition and the very first one online. To know more about Lon-art and Sheroes, visit our websites
