Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance, Act II explores the history of resistance and alternative forms of living from the perspective of gender from the late 19th century to the present and beyond. The exhibition presents ways in which resistance has been approached by visual artists, writers, architects, designers, activists, working as individuals or in groups. Grounded in intersectional and queer feminist perspectives, it takes place within a global context, referring to recent women-led uprisings and demonstrations, as well as historic moments including the Civil Rights Movement, independence movements against colonial rule in Africa, the Women’s Liberation Movement, the AIDS crisis and the Stonewall Rebellion. At the core of Still I Rise is the idea of collaboration, community building and egalitarianism.
