This Exhibition marks the double celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Women’s Interfaith Network and International Women’s Day.

The artworks on display have been selected from nearly 1,500 submissions from women across the world, including Tracey Emin. This is a platform for female artists, both established and emerging, to engage in discussion of gender, faith and spirituality.

‘My Great Great Grandfather was a slave in the Ottoman Empire. My Father was a Turkish Cypriot. He was a Muslim who grew up in a Greek village and spoke Turkish with a Greek accent. My Mother is British. She grew up in London's East End. She comes from a family of long time Gypsies. Me - I am an international artist. I exhibit all over the world. I am very happy to take part in this Exhibition.'  Tracey Emin

We have chosen the title ‘Spirit of Womanhood’ as one which encompasses a wide range of ideas about gender, faith and spirituality.

In the area of faith and religion this approach is pioneering. London galleries are increasingly taking on exhibitions organised by themes of religion and culture, however it is rare for an in-depth engagement with one religious identity to be brought into conversation with others; the question of how inter-faith dialogue can be introduced into the art world is being newly tackled.

We are excited to provide a platform for female artists, both established and emerging, which draws diverse pieces into conversation with each other. The integrity of the Exhibition rests on the quality of the art and we are dedicated to showcasing only work of the highest standard.

We are looking to bring challenging and diverse pieces into a conversation that will make for a stimulating Exhibition and a refreshing take on inter-faith dialogue.
