The St Augustine Tower, the oldest building in Hackney, provides the backdrop for the Unvoicedart exhibition and opens with a private view on 13th June 2019. Curated by East-London based painter and art blogger Fabienne Jenny Jacquet the show is a platform for 9 international up and coming artists.
Mental health issues, alternative sexuality, body image, gender representation and feminism are some of the themes explored in the show by multicultural artists.
Fabienne Jenny Jacquet said: “The Unvoiced exhibition brings together a group of artists from a variety of backgrounds. We have several artists over 40, a majority of female artists with a strong feminist ethos, artists who have used their art to deal with their mental health issues, queer artists who don’t conform to gender stereotypes and different nationalities all under one historical roof. The St Augustine Tower has such an interesting story and a very particular atmosphere. It is great venue to bring this show to the attention of the capital’s art lovers. London, and especially Hackney, is the perfect location for a show that wants to celebrate diversity and to help give artist who might still be under-represented in the art world a voice.’’
The St Augustine Tower is managed by Hackney Building Trust and this year it is providing artists and creatives in general with a space for exhibitions, residencies, talks and other cultural activities.
