To honour 100 years of the global celebration of International Women’s Day South London Women Artists (SLWA) are holding their 5th exhibition at Dulwich Library from Sunday 27 February to Saturday 26 March 2011. This year the theme of the exhibition is Women and Books, drawing on the invaluable contributions that women have made to books and libraries over the years and the inspiration they receive from them.
SLWA has already been associated with books through it’s progamme of talks also held at Dulwich Library. In 2009 Althea Greenan of the Women’s Art Library at Goldsmith’s College explained how the organisation functions as an alternative public space to view and experience women’s art. Rebecca Fortnum, Camberwell College of Art, talked about her interviews with 20 internationally recognized women artists from her book “Contemporary British Women Artists: In their own words”. More recently Dr Lara Perry who is co-editing a book on feminism and art curating presented her research “What place has feminism in contemporary practice?” to the group.
The Women and Books exhibition will look at books written by women, for women, about women or which inspire women and joins International Women’s Day celebrations on 8 March when thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements. Throughout the month long exhibition a number of local schools will attend SLWA education events organized for them by artist members. There will also be free tours of the exhibition led by a SLWA member and a chance to meet some of the participating artists on Wednesdays 2 and 16 March at 3.30pm.
Over the past two years South London Women Artists have staged numerous shows including a hugely successful exhibition at Bankside Gallery in 2010. Dulwich Library is fast becoming an established venue to view and buy original SLWA artworks and the group is delighted that books will also be the theme of the show. The works will ‘bookend’ the library bookshelves, thus connecting the thoughtful experiences of library browsing and art contemplation.
The exhibition will take place at Dulwich Library from 27 February to 26 March during normal opening hours and entrance is free. There will be a private view on Thursday 3 March from 8 to 10pm.
Dulwich Library, 368 Lordship Lane, SE22 8NB
