20 September - 7 August
It’s not often we love an artist so much we invite them to have two shows in one year – but with the magical Emma Magenta, we just couldn’t resist. Emma, through her writing, filmmaking, art and social media presence, never tires of holding a mirror up to humanity, prompting deep reflection and, hopefully, change.
My Year As A Man is Emma doing what she does best; social experiment as art. She spent a year documenting herself dressed as a man, and the result is an examination of patriarchal entitlement, and the process of trying to remedy this from within and without.
“The process for this show was live performance, transformation of myself into “the cultural problem”, and as an almost shamanic process, undertaking through performance, writing and drawing, the act of healing.”
The exhibition will feature still and moving image, alongside Emma’s drawings and writings. Join us as we examine patriarchy and its solutions through this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition.
