In November 2019 in response to the gender imbalance in the arts we organised and co-curated a hugely successful exhibition of all female artists entitled ROGUE WOMEN. This was shown in the large ground floor Rogue Studios Gallery Space with most female members taking part.
As the dialogue surrounding the inequality of women in the arts continues, we have decided to create ROGUE WOMEN 2.
We have a 50% representation of female artists practicing both nationally and internationally here at Rogue and the exhibition will showcase the talent of up to 40 of the women members alongside a small number of selected guest artists from around the UK.
Throughout art history women have been largely invisible, ignored and excluded. Our aim is to place women in the spotlight, show solidarity and to continue the discourse around these issues.
Our guest curator is Natasha Howes, Senior Curator at Manchester Art Gallery.”
