FAKERS

Victoria Adam | Cecilia Charlton | Lauren Godfrey | Holly Graham | Erin Hughes | Lauren Keeley | Milly Peck | Scarlett Platel | Amba Sayal-Bennett | Rhea Storr | Reina Sugihara

1-16 December 2018 | Thames-Side Studios Gallery, Harrington Way, London SE18 5NR 

Opening: Friday 30 November 2018, 6.30-8.30pm

FAKERS brings together eleven female artists whose work demonstrates a deep understanding of technical process. The exhibition explores how their contemporary methods are able to question and redefine historical and gendered notions of the term ‘craft’. The feminist politics present in the show does not conceptually underpin the individual works but arises through the material act of making.

Accompanying the exhibition is a booklet with a text written by Adriana Blidaru. 

The gallery is open Thursday-Sunday 12-5pm and by appointment.
