Last week I was contacted by Boryana Todorova, the Editor in Chief of the Bulgarian cultural publication Formalno.com. She wanted to know more about the concept behind the exhibition Home: Contemporary Female Masters and my view and understanding of women and migration in general.

The exhibition Home: Contemporary Female Masters is my first curatorial project. It portrays women's experience of choosing to migrate and build a home in a foreign country. This relatively new social phenomenon is examined in depth by seven mid career international women artists with strong links to Europe, the Middle East, America and Africa. They explore their experience of establishing themselves and building the elements of what they perceive as 'home' wherever they are in the world.
Swimming Against the Tide is the inaugural exhibition of Hide Gallery, featuring work by SLWA members.

The preview takes place this Friday, 27 Sep, 6:30 - 9pm.
In case you can't make it this week, a second private viewing will take place on Thursday 3rd October, 6-9pm, as part of Art Licks weekend.
