10 to 26 November
Opening 9 November, 6pm
After a successful run at the Crypt Gallery, London and at the Women of the World Festival, Radical Love #FemaleLust comes to Dublin’s GalleryX in November.
Frustrated with the burial of female voices across history, we found inspiration in those that rang out loud and proud across the Arab world over 1,000 years ago. These female poets challenge preconceptions of faith, class and the female experience long ago; they capture what it is to relish life and living.
Women across the globe, from Ireland to Palestine to Peru, Syria to Saudi Arabia, received these poems and responded with paintings, photography, sculpture, even stained glass.
Radical Love #FemaleLust showcases their artworks alongside the breathtaking poems that inspired them, full of longing and lust, pride and defiance, all sublime in their intensity.
Profits from Sales of Artworks are split between the artists and The Global Fund for Women helping Syrian Refugees.
