What She Said
Cassandra, Mepoho, the Oracle at Delphi, Himiko, Octavia Butler, Margaret Atwood…
Throughout time and across all cultures women have held the role of prophet, oracle, seer, diviner. Their stories warned us where our society was heading. In exchange for their wisdom they have been banned and burned, but also revered and channelled. She never stopped speaking and we never stopped listening. Sometimes it is a whisper and sometimes it is a shout.
When she speaks to you, what does she say?
Works in the the exhibition address the voices of women through a mix of artworks and performances running concurrently with Women's History month and Black History Month.
