InFems art collective presents its inaugural exhibition ‘Biting Back and Enjoying the Taste’ at PADA, an artist-led, non-profit arts organisation in Lisbon’s South Bay in collaboration with MOVART.
Showcasing works across media (including representations of figurative paintings, a large work on paper, a video, photographs, and ceramics), InFems wants to provoke discussions in Portugal about the role of intersectional feminism and the issues facing women today.
Biting Back and Enjoying the Taste explores subjects like the plight of refugees, the fragmented female nude, subversive behaviour – women ‘behaving badly’, the female gaze, colonialism, and female sexuality.
Its founder members, four artists and an art historian/writer, are currently living across Europe and are known in the context of the British art scene.
In keeping with InFems’s aim to empower women and foster collaborations with locally based artists, the exhibition will also feature two guest exhibitors:
Portuguese artist Rita GT who describes herself as a critical and intervening artist, approaching themes such as memory, identity or the importance of human rights and Angolan-Dutch artist Keyezua who challenges stereotypes about the African body, including disability, through photography.
