The exhibition Dis/Obedient Women is inspired by the vibrant and colourful garments common in East End shopfronts. Through often humorous and poignant artworks that relate to items of clothing – such as saris and hijabs – this exhibition addresses social and cultural traditions and invites a questioning of larger issues: belonging, dislocation, personal identity, stereotypes, gender, hypocrisy and power structures, including the many constructs around the female body. Standing as a tribute to the East End, Dis/Obedient Women also celebrates the spirit of this community, an area widely recognised for its multiculturalism, experimentation and acceptance. Alongside the exhibition, visitors can partake in sari and hijab wrapping.
Opening times:6pm–12am (free cupcakes for early birds) on 1 July.
