Virtual exhibition

29 November 2020 - March 2021

In celebration of International Women Human Rights Defenders Day (29 November), 'The Gaze that Subverts' is an exclusive online exhibition of pieces by the painter Z.

Each painting tells a story of a woman or women who, in defiance of patriarchal structures and authoritarian repression, occupy public space in China in their fight for justice.

Z's paintings are both prompted by, and provide - in their embodiment, the bent torso, the flexed muscle - a response to, a central question of rights defence: 'How do we change unjust power relationships with the all-too-scarce resources we have at our disposal?'

The exhibition will run from 29 November 2020 through March 2021. The link to visit the exhibition will be shared closer to the date.

A public event to close the exhibition will be announced in the coming months.
