As part of the exhibition “Feminism in Italian Contemporary Art”, curated by Paola Ugolini at Richard Saltoun Gallery, GalleriesNow organised - in association with Outset Contemporary Art Fund - a special evening performance and talk at the gallery in London for selected guests.
Gallery artist Silvia Giambrone gave a performance of her work “TRAUM”, a visceral investigation of the role of violence in relationships, which was followed by an in conversation about her work with journalist Hettie Judah.
“Feminism in Italian Contemporary Art” forms part of Richard Saltoun Gallery’s 12-month programme dedicated to supporting the work of female artists. Titled 100% Women, the programme aims to remedy the gender inequality that persists in the art world and encourage wider industry action through debate, dialogue and collaboration. 100% Women will pursue its mission through a combination of gallery exhibitions, art fair presentations, artist talks, a film and lecture series, external collaborations and digital exhibitions hosted on the gallery’s new online platform.
With thanks to Silvia Giambrone, Hettie Judah, and all at Richard Saltoun Gallery.
