Eye of the Huntress is proud to announce a new digital exhibition Her Dark Materials curated by Philippa Adams, WWAM Arts, launching on 22 June 2021.
The exhibition will bring together 27 International women artists from all corners of the globe including artworks especially commissioned for this exhibition. Entitled Her Dark Materials, the exhibition will interweave a myriad of art practice, performance, sculpture, installation, tapestry, collage, music, painting and photography. The show probes some of the complex psychological, physical, historical, political and cultural themes voiced by women working at a pivotal time in our history.
Her Dark Materials is a celebration of female creativity and innovation across art and tech worlds brought to life by using the most advanced CGI technologies developed by a US based all female team of tech visionaries at INVI.
The artists featured in the exhibition are Alexi Wynn Williams, Alice Anderson, Carolina Mazzolari, Celeste Rapone, Charlotte Colbert, Emma Talbot, Florence Hutchings, Francisca Sosa Lopez, Galina Munroe, Helen Epega (The Venus Bushfires), Jo Kitchen, Jodie Carey, Kristine Roepstroff, Kate Daudy, Misha Milovanovich, Nancy Cadogan, Nika Neelova, Noemie Goudal, Paulina Mischonowska, Pola Wickham, Rannva Kunoy, Sahara Longe, Seana Gavin, Sophie Vallance, Tiffanie Delune, Trudy Benson and Vinca Petersen.
The virtual display will inaugurate WWAM, founded by Philippa Adams, a digital render of a former industrial warehouse which formed part of Wolverton Railway Works, commissioned by the London North Western Railway, building carriages and lines that connected London to Birmingham. The Works remains synonymous with the Royal Train, which is still maintained at Wolverton. Established in 1838, the beautiful industrial building was left to decay but is here brought to life by the leading mixed reality visionaries at INVI and architects Julian Wickham and Alex Bilton.
Curator Philippa Adams: “During a time of deep reflection, globally, this group of artists collectively and individually, bring a fresh energy and light at a pivotal time in our history.“
Eye of the Huntress founders Alexandra Ray and Catherine Loewe: “We are thrilled to be staging an exhibition of innovative women artists selected by Philly Adams. This collection manifests so much of what we as an all-female team of creatives are about – empowering and celebrating the fearless female spirit.”
