LADYBEARD PRESENTS: HYSTERIA


LADYBEARD PRESENTS: HYSTERIA

Bubble Gum Girl 4.jpg

Inspired by a now obsolete psychological term, Ladybeard presents Hysteria will interrogate archaic notions of 'women causing trouble'. The programme includes Dirty Looks: an evening exploring the portrayal of sex on film, including work by filmmakers reclaiming porn through a feminist lens; Technical Issues: a night celebrating women making waves in the digital art world; alongside collaborative life-drawing sessions and Spiral; a group show of female artists shedding new light on so-called ‘female disorders’ like anxiety. 

The series of events aims to encourage the audience to explore elements of the female and non binary experience that usually remain hidden; from anxiety to pleasure, to trauma, Ladybeard will investigate those sensations that make us human.

The events will be open to all genders, but we are excited to carve out female and non binary space in a male art world; to open up conversations between women; and to create a specifically feminine space, where no topic is off limits.
