Desperate Artwives Exhibition runs from 14-23 January at Granby Space, 114-118 Lower Marsh, London.
I am currently showing work with the DAW collective in ‘Desperate Artwives – 5th Edition’.
Desperate Artwives is the brainchild of Italian born conceptual artist Amy Dignam, a St Martins College of Art and Design graduate. In becoming a mother and finding herself torn between her art practice and her maternal and domestic responsibilities she set up Desperate Artwives in September 2012 to create an opportunity for women like herself. Besides running Desperate Artwives, Amy has recently joined the Procreate Project as Vice Director and co-founded the Mother House.
DAW is a collective of accomplished female artists whose creative practice interrogates their experience of being wives and mothers and questions social expectations and values which frame this role. The collective provides the encouragement, the opportunities, the validation and the contextual political framework and lightens the load saving time and providing the resources needed to exhibit and promote their work.
