London: Save Yourselves @ Stour Space

Save Yourselves

For at least a decade, the urban art landscape of the East London area called Hackney Wick has shaped and developed the aesthetic of this unique pocket of London. Many of these artists have gone on to become some of the most prolific street artists of our time. As most buildings are doomed for demolition, subsequently so is the rich heritage of urban art in East London. Is there now anything left to Save, apart from ourselves?

Save Yourselves

Save Yourselves celebrates the art and the artists who have personal and emotional connections to the area. From 14th  October at Stour Space, curator artist Aida Wilde is gathering once again the ‘Lunatics’ from the recent takeover of the Lord Napier pub (Hackney Wicked 2016), bringing you an immersive, visual and historical experience.

By sharing personal photos and archival images and footage, the local people of The Wick, Hackney WickED and Save Hackney Wick have contributed to an extraordinary and emotional insight into this unique community past and present.

Exhibiting along with the ‘Lunatics’ will be the launch of the printed posters of Sisters In Print,  a collective of opinionated sixteen national and international female artists, sharing  the love of print and print making. The prints produced for the show are all printed in Aida’s studio in the heart of Hackney Wick.

An installation recreates the Lord Napier’s Pub with collaborative messages about gentrification of Hackney Wick from ‘Shithouse to Penthouse’ and features a Sweet Toof real estate agent promoting the area as ‘Urban and Edgy’.

Save Yourselves highlights the wealth and diversity of creative talents of East London, sadly pushed away by real estate speculation.  A immersive show not to be missed !

London: Empowered Printwork @ Women Art Library

Empowered Printwork - Women Art Library

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’ .
