Sweet 'Art


Sweet 'Art is a non-profit organization operating 
from a feminist perspective, which is dedicated 
to the promotion of visual artists through the 
delivery of regular site-specific exhibitions. On 
the 5-10 September 2017 Sweet 'Art will be 
hosting their first art festival in partnership 
with Ugly Duck. Femfest will take place at OFF 
QUAY an 8,000 square foot creative space and one 
of Ugly Duck's beautiful reclaimed venues, 
situated in the heart of East India Dock, London.

Sweet 'Art are seeking artists identifying as any 
gender whose works are of any media including 
painting, illustration, sculpture, installation, 
print, photography, film and performance. We 
particularly welcome submissions from BAME 
artists and women of colour. All works must 
explore the theme of women, 'femininity' and 
'feminine' identity. This can be an exploration 
of the female form, gender identity, feminist 
issues, social and political issues and 
constructs or personal accounts and perspectives. 
We are especially looking for works of art 
reflecting on the nature of the venue as 
reclaimed office space and exploring the theme of 
women reclaiming masculine dominated spaces, or 
women in the workplace.

Femfest will be a 5 day celebration including 
workshops, performance, film and much more! Sweet

may work in large installation or sculpture or
