 Nasty Women, Architecture for artists. Anise GalleryNasty Women : Architecture

Nasty Women : Architecture – Anise Gallery’s response to the global Nasty Women art and activism movement. Set up by female artists in New York last year as a protest against the election of Donald Trump, the movement has since organised a number of exhibitions and events with the aim of raising awareness of women’s rights and raising funds for organisations defending these rights. Through a special exhibition and events programme, co-curated by Aesthetica Art Prize Winner and V&A digital resident Rachel Ara and art writer Issey Scott we will be supporting the Nasty Women art movement. With an all female exhibition featuring innovative artists we are hoping to raise funds for Rape Crisis South London.

How women interact with the different spaces around us and the means in which they are constructed will be central to the curation of the exhibition. A separate section of the gallery will take on a domestic setting; surrounded by the augmented reality wallpaper of New York based digital artist Carla Gannis the space will literally come alive transforming the viewer’s perception. Sculptural works by Hannah Honeywill and Sophie Neville’s feminist embroidery will complete the scene. These pieces will be accompanied by works from selected notable female artists such as Rachel herself and SOLO Award 2017 winner Frances Richardson alongside works from an open call out.


As ideas and notions around the space we inhabit become integral to the exhibition, we have invited Amelia Hunter (New Design Britain Architecture Winner 2015 & RIBAJ Eye Line drawing award winner 2014) along with Julie Ann Cornie and William Brown to design a structure that will form the centrepiece of the gallery. A special screening of ‘Zaha : An Architectural Legacy’ by Laura Mark and Jim Stephenson will headline the events programme and a panel discussion between female figures from architecture, art and associated artistic disciplines will give the opportunity for deeper discussions into the work of Nasty Women.

About the gallery

Anise GallerySince opening in March 2012, Anise Gallery has focussed on promoting art and architecture as a joint artistic discipline. Through a programme of curated exhibitions Anise Gallery has quickly made a name for itself within the local art and architecture community. The work displayed in the gallery often extends to practices associated to architecture such as illustration and photography. Working closely, both in the sense of shared space and interest, with architectural illustrators AVR London, the gallery exhibits chosen artists that capture architecture through a variety of artistic forms.

The gallery is located in a former spice warehouse along historical Shad Thames. Although refurbished, the directors Jacquelyn and Joseph have ensured that many of the original features are retained and revealed. The industrial heritage of the building is very much evident to visitors, and provides an appropriate backdrop to the artwork.
