AdvertisementEwa Partum's solo exhibition ‘My Problem Is a Problem of a Woman’ shows how the artist has redefined the problem of feminist art over the decades by developing artistic strategies of resistance under changing socio-political conditions and contexts. The exhibition examines the work of Ewa Partum in relation to the public sphere and emancipatory artistic discourses. The documentation of early feminist performances and actions from the 70s and 80s is accompanied by the latest works by Ewa Partum, embedded in the contemporary women's struggle and international and cross-generational feminist solidarity.
Partums work has gone on to be exhibited worldwide and included in collections such Tate, London and MoMA, New York.
The exhibition is accompanied by a presentation of contemporary works by younger generation artists, Kami Mierzvvinsk, Aleksandr* Dermaniuk and Weronika Perłowska, who deal with current gender politics in Poland from a feminist and queer perspective. The selected works were submitted to the recent open call organized in November 2021 as part of the Ewa Partum exhibition at the Fabryka Sztuki in Łodz.
Thank you to Arts Council England for their support in this exhibition.
On display at Centrala from 6th May until 25th June.
