The second edition of art meets design - Femme Voices, shapes and forms is about celebrating the boldness, softness & intricacies of the female voice, shape & form through art and design. This is an exhibition comprised exclusively of female contemporary artists.
The representation of women in art has changed over time and varies across cultures. Throughout history, women have been depicted in a variety of ways, often reflecting the social and cultural norms of their time. In modern and contemporary art, women artists have been at the forefront of challenging traditional gender roles and representations of women. Female artists have created works that interrogate gender norms, explore the female body, and challenge the male gaze. They have also used art to address issues such as sexuality, race, and politics.
Although a unifying theme exploring the outstanding features & the audacious voice of the female and how it translates in art and design runs through all the works, each piece outlines its own unique story. The collection showcases paintings, textile art and sculptures which aim to raise the voice of women, while also highlighting all the intricate qualities that women possess.
Overall, the representation of women in art continues to evolve and change, reflecting the shifting social, cultural, and political climate of our times. Through this exhibition, we aim to celebrate this shift while also highlighting the role that urban design plays in expressing femininity.
The talented group of women who have displayed their stirring compositions are Lerato Motau, Jessicah Yakno-Abasi Ene, Naledi Modupi, Dora Prevost and Zenande Mketeni. The works in the exhibition are styled with pieces from BoConcept’s timeless designs that accentuate soft forms, yet bold styles.
