Review of Stir! A Fans of Feminism production at Marsh Ruby

A Fans of Feminism production
Pop up Art Show
Marsh Ruby, 30 Lower Marsh, SE1 7RG
21 March – 23 May 2014

A year ago, a group of students at the Cass School of Art realised that, although a lot of them were making work in response to women artists of the past, many of their tutors were nevertheless still educating from a male historical art canon. The student society made a request for change in the references and reading lists, and the feedback and action was positive. This encouraged them to lay more ambitious plans, such as organising talks and crits with a feminist gaze. Out of this was then born an exhibition, Fans of Feminism, which was so well received, that the group has kept on going, attracting involvement both from tutors and artists external to the university. This spring sees their second exhibition, a pop up show at a café-restaurant in Waterloo, organised and curated by Caroline Halliday, Seana Wilson, Carla Cruz and Thessa Van Der Kuyp, and bringing together works by a range of female artists, all to some degree or other celebrating womanhood.
