After completing a residency at the Women Art Library in Goldsmiths in conjunction with the Being Human Festival, street artist and printmaker Aida and artist friend and archivist Ego Ahaiwe Sowinski are presenting an exhibition titled Empowered Printwork.
Being Human Festival is a festival demonstrating the strength and diversity of the humanities, and how they can help us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others, and the challenges we face in a changing world.
The Empowered Printwork exhibition showcases newly created posters for Radical New Cross inspired by a collection of hundreds of posters from the women’s movements of the 1970s and 80s as well as a selection of posters from the Women Art Library archive about equality, freedom, solidarity, diversity and women rights.
Powerful and colourful posters feature slogans from ‘ Resist, Reject, Rethink’ to the infamous Aida’s Hashtag series ‘A hashtag might not save the world but… women might’ .
