Some of Us Are Brave

Some of Us Are Brave, curated by Sukai Eccleston, is making a return in Oxford for International Women’s Day and will run from 7th -27th March 2022. For the third edition of this touring exhibition, CasildART, is proud to present exciting new works by a range of artists including Michelle Ayavoro, Diana Rosa and Bryony Benge-Abbott on show to enjoy and purchase.

This powerhouse exhibition explores themes of the feminine, form and function in the production of Black women's art. so what better way to celebrate the unequivocal brilliance of women than through an exhibition showcasing the incredible talent and creative diversity of Black female artists!

The title of the show takes its name from a book of Black feminist writings published in 1982 entitled: All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave. The collection of essays was edited by Akasha (Gloria T. Hull) and Patricia Bell and was the first comprehensive writings on the issue of race and gender in the US.

The exhibition will run for three weeks at 95 Gloucester Green and the #WindowGalleries at Friars Entry, in Oxford's City Centre.
