Sheroes – Revoluciones

Lon-art presents Sheroes–Revoluciones, a project designed to draw attention to violence against women* providing a platform for 30 women artists, survivors and change-makers.

Sheroes–Revoluciones (Revolutions) is inspired by the impact of grassroots organisations throughout Latin America and Spain that have gathered people in their thousands to protest against the normalisation of rape, sexual violence, harassment, reproductive rights and gender inequality. These protests have not only resulted in political debates and a handful of court cases but in a global outcry that has been largely ignored. We have had enough:

-1 in 3 women (worldwide) have experienced physical or sexual violence in their lives.**

-2019 (UK) 1,300,000 women suffered domestic violence***

-2017 (UK) 139 women died as a result of male violence****

Sheroes–Revoluciones aims to visualise this social issue, using the arts to express, reflect, prevent and heal involving different social agents.

The SheroesRevoluciones exhibition on November 22-24 included 30 women artists
The exhibition was divided into three categories: domestic violence, invisible violence and activism, in the hope of encouraging conversation that transcends the taboo and shame surrounding violence. These categories attempt to unveil depictions of women’s experiences that can become sites of abuse such as race, motherhood, the menopause and abortion rights. 700 people joined us in celebrating the revolutions that are contributing to real changes around the world and giving us all hope in order to keep up the fight.

* Sheroes project stands for diversity and therefore includes women, trans, and gender non-conforming individuals, without them our mission wouldn’t be complete.

Sheroes-Revoluciones is an outcry, a collective howl that bears disturbing stories and uncomfortable truths. A celebration of women’s strength and power. A testimony of the relentless fight against the violence we suffer day in and day out.

Lon-art's Sheroes events always address extremely important subjects too rarely discussed in a creative way. Ugly Duck is proud to partner with Lon-art again for their Revoluciones exhibition in November 2019 tackling violence against women. Our ethos really resonate with each other, indeed their topics and support to emerging artists is something that we extremely value and pursue as well.
