Shelanu @ Nocturnes: A Woman Refigured

May 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Shelanu will be selling their collection at this feminist themed evening event that provides a space for dialogue and sharing ideas on women’s experiences.

The event is inspired by a portrait of Froanna by Wyndham Lewis, and will share gender and feminist theories while also providing a platform to women artists.

• Emma Margetson from BEAST doing an experimental sound performance inspired by portraits of women in the collection
