Are You A Woman in Authority? communicates the powerful rhetoric behind key social issues: mental illness, class struggles, race, queerness and feminist discourse, and how these intersect. It brings together established, critically acclaimed artists and provides a platform for emerging artists.

How much does identity, gender, sexual preference and disability impact our opportunities in society? Do women, or those identifying as non-binary need to work harder to be successful? These questions preoccupy the curatorial vision behind Are You A Woman in Authority with works by leading artists, including Sarah Lucas, Jade Montserrat, Zanele Muholi and 2018 Turner Prize winner Charlotte Prodger. The exhibition also sees the second iteration of the Mad Manual Toolkit and The Comfort Zone.

Join us for the exhibition opening on Friday 29 September, 6pm – 8pm. Find out more
