till I Rise: feminisms, gender, resistance, Act I, is a timely exhibition exploring the history of resistance and alternative forms of living from the perspective of gender. This major group exhibition looks at the many forms resistance can take: from intimate acts to large-scale uprisings, from the late 19th century to the present and beyond. Still I Rise presents the way in which visual artists, writers, architects, designers, activists, working as individuals or in groups approach resistance. Grounded in intersectional and queer feminist perspectives, it takes place within a global context, referring to recent women-led uprisings and demonstrations, historic moments, such as 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.
