My Place poster

“A sense of place is the sixth sense, an internal compass and map made by memory and spatial perception together'” Rebecca Solnit

In July 2017 South London Women Artists were been given the opportunity to respond to the theme of My Place. In this exhibition organised by Bula Chakravarty Agbo, Jennifer Merrell and Valerie Lambert, thirty artists came together at Brixton East to explore their sense of place and belonging. Their wide ranging interpretations are as diverse as geographical location, a return to childhood playfulness or the simplicity of a colour. Karen Livesey showed her film 'The Ladies Bridge' at 2pm on Sunday 9thJuly and The Rye Poets performed at the Private View.
