To engage in impromptu or nonofficial public speaking, often flamboyantly.
The Coven presents Soapbox. A show ranging in mixed media, saturated with meaning and intent of just what is means to be a female artist in todays society. Subtle differences in the work cite that each piece has been carefully positioned to not only interact with the audience but with each other, adding a sense of humanity to the objects.
The Coven is an internet based all female identified collective and in this show at Gal they’ll showcase works by Hanna Le Feuvre, Liv Thurley, Patricia Alvarado, Samantha Conlon and Sasha Cresdee.
'Re-Introducing Oshun' is “an interdisciplinary exhibition in style of Art Nude, discussing black women's bodies, gender and sexual expression through the lens of the Orisha, Oshun.” Creative director Janine Francois allowed AFROPUNK to premiere some of the images.
She tells them that this series, called ‘Exotic Fruits’, “aims to be a critique of European colonial and anthropological gaze of African women by giving back their agency”. “Featuring an all female collective working within the mediums of movement, visual arts and poetry, ‘Re-Introducing Oshun’ demystifies the omnipresent gaze placed on black women’s bodies by, creating images of black women that look, talk, feel and love like us and in doing so presenting our own truths.”
